    So, for the longest time i have been trying to mount a camera inside my car to record Laps at Trackdays and Canyons runs. A Sparco harness bar and the mount to hold a camera would be close to $400!!! So i decided to make my own.

    I went to a local camera shop and Bought this 3-D Movable mount to hold the Camera. Cost $30.

    So then i began the construction of The Bar. I decided to make something the mounted in between the 2 seats using the headrest bar for support. I bought 1'x36' Square Aluminum Tubing. Some flat U-Bolts and some other hardware to make it come together.

    I then measured Twice and Mocked it up. My drill ran out of batteries so i used a dremel to drill the holes and cut the excess threads off the bolts so everything fit clean and flush.....and just to make it look a little Pimp i Used metal polish and made the aluminum Tube Shine!!! Cant wait to get out and get some pics and vids!!!

    I Used My Pocket Camera for The Demo and Mock up Pics.

    ...But my buddy might sell me is 03' Cobra front and rear seats for like $500

    ...But i am also realy want recaro!!! Recaro SD's are going in my head also

    ...or maybe some Corbeaus

    How about I buy the seats, then put them in my car and if i dont like them i will sell them to you. You down?

    I have had my harnesses in FOREVER. They are Sparco 2 inch 3 Point harnesses with Rear Seat access Buckel and quick snap side releases.

    It bolts to the holes on the left and right of the drivers seat and there are 2 holes under the back seat that the rear seatbelts bolt to that you can use. I chose the 3 point so i could have easy access to the rear to get things if needed....has come in so much handy....4 point cant do that. this is a great street/Club Racing Harness...exactly what i do
