I'm not much help, but I have seen on this site mention of Brey-Krause harness bar.
BTW, what is the difference between a harness bar, cross bar or hardbar.
Don't they all hold harness'?

Cross bars or Harness bars are bars which attatch from B Pillar to B Pillar behind the front seats. The are an attatchment for racing harness shoulder belts and also may stiffen the chassis somewhat.

They DO NOT offer roll over protection.
They can be dangerous to the driver in a crash if improperly installed or cheaply made. There are no regs that govern them.

My recommendation is the Brey Krause bar. See:

www.bkauto.com

This bar attatches to the B Pillar using the factory mounting points and grade 8 hardware. You can retain the stock shoulder harness as well. It has shoulder harness strap guides to hold the belts in place from lateral movement. It has a reinforcing bar. It is wxcellent for a camera mount. It is a 4 point system with 2 down tubes to prevent the bar from submarining and add more chassis stiffeness. BK also manufactures Lap belt mounts which also retain the stock belts and allow you to clip in and clip out the racing belts and can accomadate a 6 point harness belt which is required for the stock seats. It is easily converted to a 5 point system if a racing seat is installed. BK also makes a nice Fire Extinguisher mount that mounts to the front seat rails.

I had an Arizona Speed and Marine harness bar in my GrandSport when I did my roll-over, end-over-end at 125MPH. I lost every body panel, including roof, except the doors and every window except the cracked windshield, but the B pillar remained straight and intact. My replacement, '03 Z06, has an Arizona Speed and Marine harness bar and Brey Krause belt anchors for clip-in waist and antisub belts.

I had the Crossbar and would recommend it. Priced very well and included camera mount. I used for some hotlapping events @ RA along with a 5 point harness. No issues.

I have the Hardbar.
Only issue was with the harness attachment bar which limits some seat travel. Actually a fair anmount considering I am only 5' 10".
