Huge spool of nylon strapping- project ideas?

I traded a buddy some lumber for this spool of nylon strap/webbing. It's actually polypropylene which supposedly holds up even better than nylon.
In addition to using the rust reformer, bedliner, and oscillating saw in the pic (for other projects), I'm thinking of using the strap and clips to make retention straps for rear seat belts, some kind of straps to hold the rear corners of the soft top up so they don't flap around, maybe wrap the steering wheel, etc

Any other ideas?

I have a similar roll. I've made basic roll-bar grab handles by sewing a few pieces together and stitching velcro to the webbing. I've made a large strap (with buckles) to wrap around my back seat, to keep it compact for movement/storage when I remove it from the rig.
I've made combination handles/hangers from similar webbing for my soft doors, and I'll soon be making door-limiting straps for my soft doors.

Good ideas. Thanks for the reply.
I've been sitting on this roll and this container of clips for over a year and I finally have a use for them. I knew I would. And my wife still gripes at me: "why do you keep all this cr@p?". This is why, hun.

You could make a cargo net, or use it as banding for a bikini top, .. I sewed a couple of different sizes into a quick release fire extinguisher holder.
