Default Harness question(s)

So as i mentioned (admitted) in my seat noob thread...I am 110 lbs. 5'10 so I was wondering what if any harnesses will fit me well without having an extra mile of slack hanging all over the place. Also I know i should really have a roll bar by now but since I don't what are my harness mounting options going to be? Is it pointless to have harnesses for the street (I will be on the track eventually but probably not for a while in this car) or should i just run witht he stock seatbelts until i can pick up a roll bar too? Sorry for being a noob now, after you guys school me on this and then suspension a few months down the road I'll be all set.

I'm 5'10.5" and 140lb. I just installed a Boss Frog roll bar and just ordered Sparco Sprints and G-Force 6pt camlocks so I'll let you know in a week or so.

my sparco sprint 5's 2007 version fit my 5'8 130 lb body just fine, as for mounting harnesses without a roll bar, get a roll bar first.

all those steroids = pencil dick (or less) .... must suck huh?

I am quite content being 110 lbs. I mean think about it, you and I in the same car and I'm faster just for the simple fact that i weigh less than you, or anyone else I know for that matter. Imagine me on a bike .

So last night I was with this girl man and let me tell you
you think you have seen pretty feet? This girl had feet that only could have been better if they were made of immaculate *** platinum with diamonds all up in them bitches or something crazy.
So after I stare at them for like 20 minutes or something she starts to pull her panties down probably an inch and a half
no no it was definitely an inch and three quarters, ******* black sexy *** motherfuckin underwear man pink and black with fur hangin out the top if you know what I mean.lol
Now its about right now that I remember the half a chicken parmesan sandwich I had left in my car from earlier and I really wanted to eat the other half of that sandwich and that was causing a conflict inside of me.
Long story short I ended up ******* her with that sandwich and eating it,
best arbor day ever

Well I pretty much had that decided already...but my real questions were (since the thread has gone so far off topic now..)

1. Should I wait to install the seats until i have the roll bar and harnesses in or is using the stock seat belt with forzas acceptable?

2. When I DO buy harnesses are there any out there for skinny people that wont end up in a tangled mess wheni tighten them?

just get a ******* baby seat and bolt it to a milk crate, so you can still see over the dash.

and you can hang this from the mirror:




just tighten up the harness like a normal person, and you should probably get a roll bar first since it makes the biggest improvement in performance...the seat is just nice to have if you're on the track. Aside from the track, keep the stock seats.

I don't think that would be acceptable on any track or even the street ...although Recaro does make some nice baby seats...

And the only reason I'm getting the seats first is because they are coming to me through a trade.

Harnesses can be adjusted so there is hardly any slack or a ton of slack, for expample: My passenger side seat has a ton of slack, just in case i have a bigger person in it where as my drivers side has close to no slack for me since im the only one who really drives it.
