Harness-essessess
« on: May 09, 2019, 10:51:23 AM »
After watching wheeling at Coffs and other events and seeing how well harnesses work, coupled with a mild degree of self-preservation Iím thinking of getting a harness for the project.

Any recommendations?

5 point harness I would recommend.  75mm webbing I find is the best.
As for brand I'd look at Motorsports in Brendale. MSA is what I use
 
Not a fan of the Cam lock as they can tend to get dust in and make it hard to clip up. Mine is quick release one.
Can send pictures if needed

Thanks Bruce, thatís actually cheaper than I thought they would be.
So Iím assuming the lap sections bolt into the standard seatbelt fixing points?
I was having a look at Gregís mounts for the shoulder straps, because my roll cage diagonal bar sits higher, it will be a pain to fit another bar and come off that. I might need a low bolt point through the floor behind the seat or something.

Shoulder straps on mine is lower. I can take photos if it helps mate.
But remember. What's the cost of safeness.  You have seen the video or Casper's roll at Janowen.
You are MORE than welcome to come see how mine is set up

I'd fit another separate bar that either comes off the B pillar hoop or off your side rails.  B Pillar one would only have to step back 50mm or so therefore would look pretty neat.
