Harness Bar-Any Interest?

So now that we're working on getting seat brackets for aftermarket seats, another thing I'd like to see is a bolt-in harness bar so that we can attach harnesses for auto-x/track use (it is not safe--or legal--to use harnesses without a full cage/roll bar)

My question to you guys-Who would be willing to buy one of these? I'm looking into something that would bolt into the 2 bolts that hold in the top mount for the seat belt. If you remove the B pillar trim You can take out the sliding piece for the seat belt height adjustment and both of these bolts are accessible so that you could just take it on and off whenever you wanted. I'll try and take some pictures later so you guys can see what I'm talking about a little better, but basically it'd just be a simple system. You'd have a spacer to clear the trim, bracket that goes back so the bar can go behind the seats, a bar going across, and then 2 braces going down to the floor for bracing. Like this:

IAG Performance: SPARCO HARNESS BAR SUBARU WRX 02-06 SILVER, Accessories, 30017S

Only difference is instead of 1 bolt hole in the bracket there'd be 2

-Throttle Controller
-DC Exhaust+Intake
-Strut brace+Sway bar
-Spec-V Wheels
-H&R Sport Springs
-Navi HU, Pioneer Spkrs, 2x10" CV Subs.

I'd be game, its just straight bolt on and not too much of a hassle of installing/removing it. Is the point of this for adding in a roll cage? I'm not too familiar with this dept..

It would just be a bar you could attach a 4 or 5 point harness to. Harness straps are supposed to be attached behind the seat at or near shoulder level in order to function properly. A full roll cage would probably need to be welded in and custom made for the car/driver, so its not really feasible. The bar would give you the option of using a harness for auto-x or on a track to hold you in the seat better. Harnesses are not street legal unless they come like that from the factory, because they modify the vehicles safety equipment. To remove it, all you would have to do is remove the 4 top bolts, then remove the 2 bolts for the support struts, take the bar out, then re-install the bolts. Pretty simple, and it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes

It should also add some stiffness to the chassis by connecting the b pillars across the center of the car and down to the floor.
