Harness mounting points

I have 6 point harnesses and need a location to fix the 2 crouch strap buckles to, does any know of a reason why I can't weld inserts in to the front seat rails to wind eyelets in to??

The seat rails are 25mm CDS tube, I was just going to machine some bosses up and weld in to them and then screw eyelets in but I can't find any reason in the blue book why I can't?

Any help or pictures of what other people have done would be greatly received.

I have seen them done like that before but I dont
Like fixing my harness to the same point the seat
Is fixed to.

I prefer some harness mounting plates welded to
The underside of the floor and thread your eye bolt
In through the floor.

Harness mounting points

Yes I think I'm going to go for this option, makes sense.

There is an original threaded insert the right thread on the inside of both sills so I'll use them for the side straps and add new ones on the exhaust tunnel to suit. I will then put threaded spreader plates in floor for the crouch strap, where abouts is best Dan, towards back of seat to get rid of some of the slack or just under the seat area? Any pics would be great so I get an idea.

Thanks

Depends if you have 5 or 6 points.
5 point should be down vertical.
6 point should be angled backwards.
Lots of good info on the Schroth website.

I have my 5th and 6th point angled slightly behind the crotch slot in the seat, into the floor with spreader plates. The floor is super flexible there though...

But, my opinion was the 5th and 6th points are the 2 less important ones as they only prevent the submarining effect (someone may shoot me down here)
