Harnesses on a budget...

and that doesn't mean I want something that'll tear away in a crash!

I'm looking for camlock type harnesses and want to find the cheapest place to get them. Any ideas?

Damn, I just sold a set of Crow camlock harnesses for $225 including mounting hardware. I would have made you a smokin deal after all the deals you've made me...sorry man!

That's cool man, I appreciate the thought. I'll probably go with the ones that John posted a link to.

I got my Carbotech's in today, so I'll need all the harness I can find!

Tom,
The harnesses I pulled out down at your house last week were the ones that John posted. I got a pair of them myself.

Tom, I've still got my old set after having them replaced by Simpson. Red, 5-point camlock, out of date, etc. You can have them if you want them.

Tom - I just picked up these:
http://www.curpiermotorsport.com/xca...t_Harness.html

Ordered from Adam Curpier. These guys are ECHC racers. Very freindly, great customer service (which is always worth a price premium - it's an added bonus when they have great customer service AND good prices).

I know this isn't "budget", but the new Sabelts are FIA rated until 2009 - yes, that's right, 2009. The larger investment early on may be worth it - you can take these into the AI car you WILL build someday and get years of use out of them.

I have the Sabelts (albeit, the older ones) in my car now and LOVE THEM.

FWIW... (for what it's worth)

The G-Force can be ordered with the Rating for 5 years. Craig told me that after I ordered mine.

Yup, I got a 5 year patch on mine.

BTW...SCREW at 99+ Cobra and installing harnesses. Took us 6 damn hours for just the lap belts. The lap belts mount to the seats, not the body of the car. And................the bolts that hold the seat belts to the seat bracket are WELDED on. We were having to install eye bolts for "snap ins" Who the hell at Ford came up with such retarded stuff. We had to take a Porta Band and cut the bolts flush with the belt plate, then drill the things out. Then 6 bits later they were out. What a pain in the $%#.

Well, I have lapbelts, I can only imagine how fun the sub belt is going to be.

Goodnight!

Craig

6 point Impact Racing belts mounted OK in my 99. The outside lab and sub belts mount in where the factory belt goes with eye bolts and snap ins. The inside mounts required a plate with eye bolts- a little welding (but I didn't do it ).
The G-force black 6 points (~$70) were not in stock at the time so I went with ~$100 belts at Impact. At first I wasn't happy about the higher cost, but I like the construction and the yellow lightening bolt on black looks good. I did have to order longer straps for the subs to fit over the stock seat.

Did Ford change the way they installed seat belts from the 98's to the 99+ cars? Putting the lap belts in mine and Jay's car was a piece of cake. Remove the seat, unscrew the seat belt bolts and replace with eye bolts. Sub belt took a little drilling, but was still pretty easy. Were you tipping a few back when you did this Craig?

fwiw, scca rules indicate on the harness that they should be replaced every two years ( a change from every 3 years) with an sfi rating of 16.1.

fia systems should not be older than 5 years (shuggs post till 2009 works if the harness set is new in 2004).

the webbing material deterorates over time and use or an "incident".

just my 2 cents worth
