Roll Bar + 5 Point harness + Stock Seats = Bad Idea?
Hey guys, Quick question. Im planning on building my 86 GT as a mild track car that I could still drive comfortably on the road. I already knew not to use 5 point harnesses with no cage and stock seats, because in the event of a bad crash, the roof could cave in and you would be stuck in the vertical position. So my plan is to delete the rear seat on my car, build a simple cage with the main hoop behind the driver and passenger seats, cross braces, and some bars going to the hatch area floor of the car and the drivers and passenger sides floorboards. Then my plan would be to mount the shoulder harnesses over one of the cross bars behind the seats, with my seats. I dont really want to change seats because I just got these mint leather buckets out of an 04 GT fitted in my car, and im starting to really like them. Ive been getting mixed answers, so i figured id ask around. Are factory seats with a roll cage and 5 point harnesses a bad idea?
1986 GT with the typical poor boy mods. 3.73s, Hurst short throw, King Cobra Clutch with aluminum quadrant, lowered two inches on Eibach springs, Hopefully adding some heads and a decent intake soon!
