Either going to POR 15 or powdercoat it. Actually depends on if I can really get it out of the car ;)

It is handy to be able to move it around though. Like when I have to re-do the headliner, etc.

I have FIA seats that require 6" of space behind them for flex, so that made the harness bar a pain to put in the main hoop. Some retrofit a back brace, but I am not putting one of those on a seat not designed for it.

I dunno, POR is so great out of UV exposure. It's so easy and covers so well and even. But powder coating is nicer... But more $$. Who's counting though right

POR can be sealed against UV exposure, for what it's worth.

Roll bar looks great!

Cool addition to the car. What size plate did you use to tie roll bar to rear strut tower ?

Ah, that's a tall person problem ;) Us short folks can't get the seat that far back otherwise I can't reach the pedals :)

Makes sense though, and why I see the harness bars that arch away from the seat and back again. Never realized the spacing behind the seat was even a requirement! I was always curious about harness stretch though, so if you have that much material, could it stretch TOO much? I have nothing to back that up, just a thought that popped through.

Regardless - nicely done.

And if you can get it out, I just rattle canned mine. Still looks great, and holds up well. Not as nice as PC'ing it, but given the limited interaction it gets with everything around it, the epoxy spray can I used worked great!

Harness stretch does happen, but honestly, most of the cars I looked into were setup like this. From dedicated track cars, rally, and a world challenge car that was there.
