    Shoulder harness mounting improvement

    I just finished the mockup for my shoulder harness mounting. The stock mounting points are way to high up, especially if you use Hans or Hybrid neck protection. The angle has to be 10 to 15 degrees downwards so I made an attempt to solve this problem I might have gone a bit overboard on the thickness of the material but I'm not an construction engineer so better safe than sorry! Pics below.

    GEEZ!!

    Might as well install a pre-fab SCCA-spec roll-bar and use roll-bar-wrap harness mounts

    How do they look? I guess they will need quite a bit of altering of the interior? Anyway, I like to tinker around and not much of the interior has to be altered. And it's cheap

    That tow hook look beefy enough you could probably tie your car down from there in the front which would save so much time loading in a trailer.

    I don't know about that. The weak point is the clamping force around the tube. I think it's good enough for towing in a fairly straight line, and I did add a secondary 27mm (3mm) tube inside it for pulling forces. But straight down, I'm not so sure...
    I usually tie down my cars around the tires anyway since it's less stressful to let the car "ride" on its suspension during towing.
