It's my understanding that HD door bars will not work with racing seats. I mean, unless the bars are super skinny, I couldn't possibly see my Bride Vios not getting in the way. It is mounted pretty far to the left though, as it is on the stock slider.

You just need to measure the seat thigh bolster width to make sure they fit. Most companies will provide the specifications on the seat.

Regular Buddy Club racing seats fit fine. Its definitely tight but they fit.

Is it OK to do it just because it's fun?

As my father always said, as long as you are having fun...although in that context it feels wrong to quote my father....

I still doubt I could fit these things on my car with the racing seat, but I suppose I could order some up and return them if they do not fit :(. I'll try to remember to post a pic of them on here once I get them though!

Got the frame rails yesterday, put them on in the driveway in 4hrs, my rails are in good shape so it only took 3min hammering on the rails before the braces slipped over. Going to drive it for acouple days and report back on if i feel they made any difference

That is an expensive way to do it with the cost of shipping seats and all.
