NOTE: RACING HARNESSES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR STREET USE! SERIOUS INJURY COULD OCCUR IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT!
Time: 1-2 hours
Cost: harness + hardware (~$10)
– socket wrenches and ratchet
– 2x eye bolts
– 2x L brackets
– C-clips for harness
Depending on your setup, you will need either two eyelet bolts, and two L brackets- If you have a 4 PT harness, with all 4 parts having the c clips on them
Or simply two eye bolts- If your rear straps have the holes to be bolted in on them (not very common, most have the clips like the above on all 4 parts)
Ok….now the fun part:
This is 240/Silvia specific only.
Find some eye bolts that thread into the rear mounting bolts for the seat. There is one that his horizontal on the console side, and one that is vertical on the driver side. Replace the bolt with the eye bolt for your harness. Make sure its tight please.
Go ahead and clip in the lap belts there .
For your shoulder straps – put them through your seat/in the middle of your headrest/racing seat holes.Whatever it is that you are putting it in, make sure when you put it through, you cross the harness straps. This is for safety reasons.
Once they are crossed like this:
Bolt them down to the seatbelt mounting points behind your seat using either an eyelet bolt, or simply bolting them down (depending on style).
Now just so you know the reasoning behind the mounting points shown here:
Those are the acceptable mounting angles for most competitive organizations. Follow it, it’s there for a reason.
Make sure everything is tight.
