Guys, Im thinking of fitting harness\' instead of existing inertia reel belts. Any reccomendations? Three point will I think be enough., although open to suggestions!

Any advise gratefully recieved, oh, and of course pointers as to where I can get \'em from!!

Ok, I\'ve done this:

First off, get a harness bar from

http://www.rotaryextreme.com/

I paid $325 last August.

This acts as a rear strut brace, but is beefed up and has 4 eyebolt holes for driver and passenger side harnesses.

Then buy a 4 or 5 point harness from demon tweeks. These come with the eyebolts usually, but make sure.


Make sure your seat has the holes for the shoulder straps :)

The shoulder straps are at a near perfect horizontal angle doing it this way.

Mount the lower harness straps on the existing seat belt mount points.

If you\'ve gone kinky and bought the 5 point ball cruncher strap, you\'ll need to drill a hole in the floor under the seat, and adequately plate to ensure the strength is there. Make sure (again!!) that your seat has a hole for the 5th strap.

I have retained the existing belts as well, to keep it road legal.
