A while back there was a post with a dimensioned picture of where to drill the lap mount holes. I've been searching for 1/2 an hour now, but can't find it. Can someone point me to it???
Typically they are attached to the standard seat belt mounting structure. Sector 111 sells a kit to make this easy.
hmmm. there are two seat frame mounts at the base of the bulkhead, into a channel within the frame rail. i don't think anyone has used these points directly. the s111 sandwich solution, eventually relies on these bolts to keep you connected to the car.i was under the impression that there are threaded bolts and holes welded on to the roll bar 5 inchs south of the seat belt mounts?

I think exarkun is talking about the harness bar mounting location on the rear of the rollbar. The OP is referring to the lap belt mounting points and not a location to mount the harness bar, if I'm reading this correctly.hmmm. there are two seat frame mounts at the base of the bulkhead, into a channel within the frame rail. i don't think anyone has used these points directly. the s111 sandwich solution, eventually relies on these bolts to keep you connected to the car.
not sure of what you're referring. :shrug:
my bad, i added the linky to my post.Thanks everyone.
First, ACE10, I didn't see a thread referenced in your post, but I assume you're referring to the same post as jkolb's post?
What do people think about mounting the laps to the existing seatbelt mounts if the subs are also going to be mounted to the seat (Titanium Dave's bar if I can get them)? I need to do this because my girlfriend will be driving too so we need the adjustability. Some people have referenced reinforcing the seat mounts...how is this done?
What about mounting both the subs and the laps to the existing seat belt mounts???
So many options...so few brain cells to consider them all...
Thanks again everyone!
The following shows how the fasteners are attached with the Competition Seat Mount Kit which, unfortunately is not available in the US. If you are drilling through the tub make certain that you have some kind of plate to spread the force on any impact. The tub aluminum will tear out very quickly without some kind of doubling plate that spreads the load over at least 4 sq in.
Actually.. No..those bolts are threaded into aluminum.
hey arno, thx for chiming in. if memory serves, i could wiggle the inserts within the frame channel at the rear mount point for the seat. they did not "feel' bonded to anything.Actually.. No..
The rear bolts thread into steel plates that are bonded/glued inside the chassis channels.
The front bolts thread into weldnuts that are attached inside the chassis channel.
