How did you guys mount your harnesses?

I'm finally getting around to installing my 4-point MM rollbar in my '93 LX (track only car). After this, I will need to purchase and install a harness. I was wondering if you guys re-used the factory mounts for the seat belt, or did you drill new holes (and presumably installed backing plates also) ?

Also, if any of you guys have pictures, that would be a great help too!

Thanks,
Mark

For the lap belts, I just used the factory holes with the torx bit-headed bolts. The bolt was a nice snug fit through the harnesses mounting plate's hole. Got it to the right angle and then tightened the bolt.

I used the factory mounting points for the lap belt as well. Of course the shoulder belt is attached to the rear cross bar. The submarine belt is mounted to the seat . Not sure if it is supposed to go there but my seat mount is custom made and it is pretty thick L bracket material.

OP, if your car is a track dedicated car you should make your next mod a nice welded cage with side bars. You'll be amazed at how much more solid the fox body feels. Plus you just get that sense of security with all those nice steel bars around you.

I skimmed a couple harness manufacturer installation instructions and they all showed the anti-sub belt connecting to the <reinforced> floor pan and not to the seat itself. However, interestingly enough, I found in the SFI Installation Guide that depending on the set-up that there are cases using a 6-point that connect directly to the seat bottom.

In any case, I think ideally, if you're building a cage, I 'd install integrated seat bases into the cage itself for the seat as well as the tabs for the harnesses to attach to.

Factory holes/bolts for the bottom, Wrapped the shoulder straps around the harness bar of the cage. zip tied the excess straps behind the harness bar. The crouch strap (6 point) i just used a bolt from the seat to the frame, front right bolt or nut of the seat.

Thanks for all the info, this is what I was looking for.

I am not installing a cage but a MM bolt-in 4 point bar with welded in diagonal and harness bars. I think I'm going to purchase some eye-bolts with the large washers to sandwich the floor pan which would allow me to use clip-in belts. I am also going to do the same with the sub belt.

Thanks for the info!
