Wink Making a harness bar

I am going to fab a harness bar, how do you get the interior b pillar covers off as well as cut them without f-ing them up?

Im using 1.75 tube and two 1/4" plates to mount to the pillar for anyone who asking how.

Im not making a seat mount, mine will mount on the b pillars and will also provide chassis rigidity

Seat mount........? Not sure what you mean by this, but it is a harness bar like you are describing. It has some additional supports (that you really need to consider for your design) but it still has an attachment to the b pillar.

If you think a simple bar going from b pillar to b pillar is going to add any stiffness, you need to rethink your design.

Using the factory seat belt mounts like we did wtih the monkeyBAR is the safest way to go because you are using factory-crash-tested locations. I'd be very very careful about just bolting or welding a bar to the b-pillar.
