Highly desired in hard-tops (for autocrossing), but I thought that since the roll hoops & windshield weren't _quite_ high enough, you wanted to be sure that your head wasn't kept upright in a bad crash/rollover. Of course, your HMS Roll Bar is probably higher, but can't be too high or the top wouldn't close.

I know that this isn't a very strong argument, but it seems strong enough to not go to a harness. Otherwise I would have gotten SOMETHING for my car.

: I run a 5 point 3" Simpson harness.

: The lap belt uses the same mount points as the stock seat belts.

: The shoulder straps are connected to a HMS harness bar connected to my HMS roll bar. The seat has a hole in it to pass the shoulder straps (in a "Y" configuration). The harness bar and seat grommets are available from HMS and work with their roll bar.

: The sub strap (a two-point configuration) is bolted to the front seat mount points using custom nuts I machined myself. The sub strap is not at the optimum angle (the power seat motor is in the way) but will help to stop the lap belt from climbing.
