I know Mid America has them. I hear it is real easy to do. I have not done one for my car yet.

Brey-Krause makes a high quality harness bar (stainless steel) and also are DOT approved.

You can get info at www.bkauto.com Elseware in the forum is info on the install procedure. The most time consuming part is separating the power seet connector--no rooms for your hands to get at the little bugger. It helps to unbolt the seat completely and carfull tilt it to get a better angle.

Have put one in my car and a friends--they work well and allow you to use the stock seat belt also.

Their bar is not DOT aproved. I talked with them about it and they said it was not certified. They tested it and said it should meet the requirements. ???

All of the main line harness bar manufactures that I know have done some type of testing to meet the requirements. But none of them are DOT certified.

I stand corrected on the DOT, should have put on my glasses and read the fine print more closely. At first glance is sure looks like it-even with the glasses on

Harnesses are an excellent idea and work like a charm if you plan to auto-x or do driving schools. I had a harness bar in my 98 that I got from Mid America (I think) along with a set of good harnesses mounted directly to the bolts that hold the seat tracks to the floor. I'm not sure if the harness bar was DOT approved or not, but I always ran with the stock seat belt over the harnesses while on track...just to be sure.

If you're going to do a lot of track stuff though, I highly recommend a full cage and racing seat, belts, etc.

I will agree on the BK bar, it is what I run as well, the install is VERY clean, and VERY solid... you can also take it out and it will not even scratch a single item... it looks like it is made as part of the car... I was able to install mine with the seat in with no problems.

Ditto on the BK bar. It costs a bit more but you get what you pay for. Get the lap belt brackets also. My only complaint is that the harness hoops are not ideally located for the ZO6 seat. I had to wrap my belts to the outside of these hoops, but that seems to work OK for me. The bar is really designed for the sport seats with the opening in the headrest.. The Z06 has the WRONG seats IMO. I wish they would use their "sport seat" in their "sport model" Duh.

I also installed the Crossbar from R-D Racing. The installation was easy and looks great in the car. I also ordered Sparco Harnesses from R-D. I wouldn't drive a Z06 like it should be driven without some tipe of harness.

P.S. - I think the other corvette site has the crossbar on a group purchase now.
