My NRG harness bar was delivered yesterday. So, like most of you...I also went ahead and installed it about 32milliseconds after I had removed the packaging. Aside from the mounting hardware, the bar comes with a bag of assorted sized washers, spacers, and ring adapters to replace worn out/complement factory pieces. The stock bolts at the top of the B-pillar were reused, however new (longer) bolts needed to be purchased for the lower attachment points at the base of the B-pillar since the factory bolts were not long enough to accommodate both the harness bar vertical support and seat belt. Any fastener shop should be able to match the thread pattern for you if you simply remove the bolt and bring it in. Remember to use grade 8.8 or above bolts for this installation! Clearance was tight (about 1/4inch to spare) between the vertical support and the rear corner of the passenger bucket seat, however, the seat was at its rearward-most position on the slider. The bar is very sturdy; I was tugging and trying to move it around with my full body weight and it did not budge at all! There weren't any problems with the install sooooo...

[Be aware that the harness isn't wrapped/mounted to the bar yet. These pictures were taken BEFORE I started/finished that part.]

...here's the finished product!

Well, depending on how far you are from Niagara Falls...we could possibly meet up. The Great NY is coming up my way in the fall. We could all do a meet in the Falls? :yesnod:
