    I have the original LG Harness Bar, and its a great form meets function design. There is a person selling theirs over on tech but is askign $350. Mine is not for sale but I picked mine up for $200 shipped.

    6LE has a fabricated one, loosely based off the LG design as Sommer has said above. should be on thier website.

    hey sommer 6LE, check out the shark bar, (harness bar) at LG motorsports, if you guys made one like that i would buy it now, i like the straight across design, and the holes in the plastic are round and clean, with grommet, looks good, not saying your product isnt nice,too.

    No offense to anyone but the LG bar (the f-body bar they had, I don't know what the shark bar was) looked like garbage.

    Two huge square tubes sticking out with a bent bar welded on. Looks like it was made from parts left over from a swing set or something. Welds looked a little goobered on there as well which I guess you want more than less considering it being extra pieces like that it could break.

    Ours was designed by CMJ that makes race bars/cages/etc... for a living AND race themselves and win. Ours is one smooth bar welded on to thick plates (as opposed to a bar welded to square tube welded to plates) for a reason, your safety AND aesthetics.

    potatoe, potato...no one is saying anything negative about either...simply the availability of an HB for f-bodies.

    as for the 'shark-bar', i had to look that up. it's only for corvettes.

    ^^Honestly, they are both a dumb idea. We made it just because it was requested but either one you're bolting a huge bar to flimsy sheet metal (yeah, the factory belts are there as well, it is horrible IMHO).

    We just recommend people use a real bar and be safe...

    I don't think he was being negative... just implying that the use of this particular bar is not recommended to anyone who legitmately needs this type of harness. As he stated, it attatches to sheet metal and not to a roll cage, which in a real world situation, isn't the safest.

    That's at least what I got from the comment. I'm no pro since I've never installed one, just what I understood from reading it.

    Well technically if you are fast enough to require the 5 point harness, then you are supposed to have the roll bar too anyway, because they are both teched and required at 11.49 or quicker for hartops and 13.49 or quicker for verts last time I checked.

    So why anyone would want a 5 point harness without the rollbar also required by NHRA is beyond comprehension in my eyes.

    Not to mention, the last time I had my race car teched (been years ago) those shoulder belts need to be anchored so many inches from your shoulder height per NHRA. Too low (like at the rear of the floor as previously mentioned) won't fly at tech inspection. That's a dangerous scenario. If you really had to use them,,,they would crush your spine.

    My opinion, do it right or take them out. Nobody wants to see all the flashy go stuff in a car that doesn't require it anyway

    Exactly and when we made it the way it SHOULD be made (right behind the seats since belts should stretch no more than one inch) people complained they couldn't recline their seats Which, coming from the mentality of racing and safety, seemed ludicrous.

    Exactly my intention... This bar is for someone who just wants the look or is running seats they can't run factory belts with.

    Is it this?



    If so looks fine as at least the bar is welded right to the plate, not a bar welded to square tube (at a stress point) and then a plate.

    Honestly not trying to sell (I stopped paying sponsorship as we've been gearing the shop down so I can do other stuff full time) but I just think our design...







    Is much cleaner and safer than "their" design...





    Don't get me wrong. I LOVE LG, they make some REALLY great stuff and I have their parts on their car. This is just one piece I was never a fan of and we people asked us to bring it back I decided to make it better IMHO.
