Another Harness Question

Post by Gollum » Tue Sep 09, 2014 2:36 pm

Sorry guys, another harness question.....

I bought a couple of very nice looking Willans harnesses from the UK:

The same as this but in black......

Now, of course it is never that easy! The brackets at the rear foul my rollbar. I either need to re-engineer the mounting point or sell the belts and get some more. One third option I thought of was to somehow extend the brackets if it can be done without being dangerous. Something like these Schroth brackets maybe?

Anybody got some practical advice to get my harnesses fitting or is someone else on the forum going to get a bargain on two brand-new harnesses?

I don't see a problem with those as they are part supplied by Schroth made exactly to do what you want (move the harness mounting point so hardware doesn't foul on parts of the car) not sure what a wof inspector would think though!

Getting the right harness to fit in a car is a bit of mission with so many different variables! I spent weeks researching before getting my Schroth harnesses

You could build a MSNZ bar, and wrap the harnesses around it"?

Not if the fittings are sewn in bolt fittings like it looks in the photo
