Full harness belts in a Hawk

Post by simonjrwinter » Sun Feb 10, 2019 10:07 am

Just out of interest, has anybody fitted four/five point seatbelts in a Hawk? If so how was it achieved?
Thanks

Hi Simon
I have a four point harness in my FIA
The lap straps are mounted using eye bolts screwed into the standard seatbelt mounts on the floor. For the shoulder straps, I had four threaded bosses welded onto the cross member of the seatbelt frame behind the seats. Eye bolts then screw into these to provide the mounting point.

Personally I wouldn’t want a full harness unless I had a full width roll over bar.

Im still thinking what to do. 2 points is the easyest but unsafe? 3 points doesnt look that cool. 4 points is hard to get in!
Grtz Frank. so im thinking about 4 or 2 points. advice needed LOL
