Post Another 5-point harness question

I was thinking of installing the H-style 5-point harness; which length does one use for a 911? I see 75" and 48". Also, what is the difference between "snap-in" and "bolt in"? I've seen installations using the stock belt mounting areas - which one is that?

Thanks!

Thom,

If you're shoulder harness is going to attach to a roll bar, the 48" will do. If you're going to route over a harness bar to hook into the rear seatback bolt location, you'll need the 75". I use snap in connectors for all my belts. That's where you mount an eye bolt and the belts have a spring loaded snap on the end. Makes removal easy. Bolt in is just that - not easily removed. You can also use wrap around ends, which would work attaching the shoulder straps to a rollbar - again a bit of a pain, but not difficult, to remove. For the lap belts, I removed the stock seat belt bolts and replaced them with eye bolts, then snap in the lap belts. Stock belts still work for daily driving. On the shoulder belts, as I mentioned, you can replace the rear seatback bolts with eye bolts, or you can also, with some extra steel backing plates, put eyebolts through the rear firewall. There's an article on the tech.rennlist.com site under drivers education that might provide some additional information.

Thom, I have a DIY on my website with a harness and harness bar install in my 993. Not sure what 911 you have, but they should all be pretty similar. My address is in my signature block below.

Sweet! *Exactly* what I needed!

How much did the "tunnel adapters" run you - are they absolutely necessary?
