Totally your choice to install Italian job long straps... but really consider how much damage a Belt would do on the bonnet of a car...  Sliding around . Ruining paint.

Sure classic Bentleys and Brass era cars seemed to have wool Lined straps.   they may be the proper item to find /  or have made to protect a paint job...

Your design,. Goodluck!
