I need to wipe down the back seats, that's just sweat from installing. It's hot down here in FL for this time of year, in the low 80s.
Did you get this from HMS? I am currently looking at the option as I would like to run a hans.

I have just reviewed all available information, including scientific papers (search for roof crush and spinal injuries) and my conclusion is that you will be safer with a harness most of the time on track even in a roll over accident.

The only time the above is an issue is if it is a roll over, AND there is a roof crush AND if the roof crush is severe enough. It is not practical for everyone to have a full cage, and I just want to make sure that people don't blindly belief what's out on the net and review the data before making a decision on harness. I have more information to share but it is getting OT.
