If this is intended for racecars, you can use the rear seat mounting bolts to triangulate, and using some elbows use front seats' rear mounting bolts for vertical support. Could also have a bar swoop between seat and center consol to front mounting bolts for an extra bit of security, if seats wouldnt pose a fitment issue.

I personally dont see a reason for a harness bar unless honda decided to toss a big threaded bolt hole behind the B pillar paneling about shoulder height

This could results in serious, crippling spinal injury if not executed properly.. which is different for every driver.

This is really not an especially good idea guys.

Well that's one sure fire way to end up in a wheel chair.

DSM has the correct info. I just had a harness bar made by a roll cage and fabrication shop. I'd post pics but it's currently getting painted. THIS IS A SAFETY ITEM, so do your homework before you make any effort to attempt this.

I had a Corbeau 4pt harness installed improperly (mounted to bolt points for rear belt buckles) in my GD3. I had a collision into a tree at roughly 35mph and had lower back pain for a good 3 months that I attribute to the improper mounting of those belts. I learned my lesson.

having your harness shoulder belts tie into rear seat buckle mounting point is not exactly bad, it isnt the best angle, but it isnt as extreme as down to the floor like the bar posted on this thread. You back pain may be a result of more than just the shoulder harness mounting location. Schroth has a belt specifically designed for this type of install, and their 4 point version has an anti-sub system incorporated into it to keep the buckle and lap belts from riding up the torso in a collision. I dont know of another manufacturer with this type of system, and i know corbeau doesnt offer it. I have personally used the anti-sub 4 point Schroth in an E46 m3 with shoulder harness going to rear seat buckle mounting points and it works almost as well as most harnesses that incorporate a 5th anti sub belt.

My current Harness is a Schroth 4pt with ASM technology and the DOT legal push-button cam lock. I'm well aware of Schroth's belt line and recommend it highly! They're pricey, but worth it. Corbeau's were cheap, but the mounting is definitely incorrect. Ideal angle is swing between horizontal and 25* downward. The way I mounted the GD3's was definitely outside of this spec.

think the beatrush bar is meant to be a brace, not a harness bar. Regardless, Id be interested in this floor brace if theres one for GD

I think Beatrush has a brace / harness bar that looks like it could work. I'm looking for a pic now
