I couldn’t resist taking them out of their boxes and arranging them on the floor to see what they would look like when fitted. Like any safety restraint used in motorsport the belts have a “use by date,” this particular set guaranteed until 2018, something that is specified on this label on one of the lap belts. And with the ton of fake & copied tuning and racing products that continue to hit the market, make sure you always check serial numbers and official warranties of everything you buy.
This is probably my favorite detail of these new black belts, the green little tab that you pull up when undoing the two shoulder straps.
So after getting weird looks from the wife, probably puzzled at why a grown man would play with his latest gadgets on the floor like a child…I decided to pack them back in their boxes and get ready to fit them the following day. Each belt comes with a little bag containing eyelet bolts, washers and safety pins that help hold the snap-on latches shut when the end fitting are snapped in place.
Seeing I would have to use a few of the stock belt mounting points, Takata also sent me a few of these Bendable Snap On Kits, ingenious little brackets that would prove invaluable. With the crazy work schedule I’ve had since the beginning of the year, the GT-R has been sitting unused, and just as I assumed the battery was a little on the flat side.
Anyway, with the charger plugged in and doing its thing, I moved into the interior where, to get going, I needed to first remove the rear bench seat. Thankfully Nissan, next to each central rear-belt mounting point, already added an additional threaded anchor point.
For the second one I had to use the bolt-point where the retractable rear seat belts are mounted. This is where those bendable brackets came in handy, easily bent upward to the most appropriate angle with a pair of pliers, a towel to avoid scratching them and of course a little force. On the left side the sturdy seat rail mount came in handy, again to gain access to it I had to remove the plastic clip-on cover that usually hides the exposed metal.
With all four points of the belts clipped in I then secured them with these pins that are included in each harness package. I actually ran out of bendable brackets so only completed the installation for the driver side; above are the plastic covers that needed to be removed to gain access to the bolts. I am very glad I ended up going with the black ones as they really do look very modern and give that fresh feel to the cabin that I was looking for. Now all I need to do next is find some time to take the car down to Hakone and give these belts a proper test! Holy shit this is crazy, there's a select few that know what they're talking about, and put it in a very nice manner, being constructive and trying to give advice that will potentially prevent serious injury, so their tone is "chilled out" and they're not being "haters" (jesus chirst I fucking hate that word!) yet Dino you choose to ignore pretty much each and every one of them and only reply to ones who say "ignore the haters man! I am quite sure that most of the hate-comments come from the same person with different accounts.


Wow between this and the Kanjo post Speedhunters are getting alot of hate today - if you don't like it, go elsewhere.
And bashing him for saying the culture is different in Japan is just narrow-minded, what it means is that in Japan, not everyone who has a fast street car with harnesses in them have roll-cages. I also believe there's a difference between constructive criticism and "haters" a lot of people seem to forget about. Safety is the NUMBER ONE PRIORITY in racing and this article is simply spitting on that fact because it looks cool and they're a SH sponsor. The belts and brackets are fine as they have been approved by governing bodies and authorities, the rear install location is the issue as pointed out by a handful of on the ball people. Irrepsective of being a 'street car' if an incident happens, whether on the street or the track there is no second guessing how fast or in what direction the impact will come, so to have belts fitted incorrectly is potentially more dangerous thank safe. SH, do your homework guys, you are good at taking pics but when demonstrating the fitment of safety equipment (or any other equipment for that matter) you could find yourself in a tricky position should someone follow your lead and have injury caused through it, or simply add a disclaimer or better still err on the side of caution and dont do it! I appreciate Takata are a site sponsor and you are trying to do the right thing by them but dont compromise yourself. In the few instances that I’ve taken my GT-R out on track one of the things that I was always concerned about, obvious safety aside, was sliding all over the seat through corners and under hard braking.
Since my GT-R is and will remain a street car, going for “bolt-down” type belts that can’t be taken out quickly is not exactly what I wanted. Takata places this serial number tag on the other lap belt, so if you are in the market for one of these harnesses, this is the first thing you should look at before buying.
I never ever cover the car unless its completely clean and dust-free and to avoid the inner side of the cover to scratch the paint finish while it flaps around in the wind I always lay a few old sheets for extra protection. Now before anyone comments on these latch points, yes I am well aware they are not the best way to mount harnesses.
I have to say they really do look much better than sitting on the floor and sort of make the tacky seat fabric Nissan chose in the late nineties for the R34’s upholstery, seem rather dated. They're just driving riced out civics" when in reality it's the poorer people that drive riced out cars or just form over function cars that are going to buy fake takatas after reading this (cos that's all they can afford) and then install it following your steps here, so they can be mad jdm tyte cos that's how they do it in Japan, they probably can't even read so won't look at the text or any of the comments to realise they've installed it incorrectly. This is partly because the Japanese have found ways other than roll cages to reinforce their cars' chassis. I highly doubt this is unsafe if TAKATA provided the necessary tools to mount the harness in this manner. Instantly dismissing someone as a "hater" simply because they dare say anything negative is becoming an increasingly common occurrence.
If it is deemed unsafe by Takata's own instruction manual you shouldn't install them like that! Now I find myself "drifting" away because of things like this, logging on less than three times a week.


How other people can call these guys haters is beyond belief as they are knowledgable and are caring for the safety of the user. Don't really understand the hate on this one though, mounting belts like that is really common practice and fairly safe for a street car.

And this isn’t even only on track; ever since fitting Bridgestone RE55S semi-slick tires, taking the car on spirited mountain drives has increased this effect tenfold; the last thing you want to do when pulling over 1G in corners is having to brace yourself with your knees against the center console and the door!
So at each of the four latching points, as you can see above, there are quick release end fittings. And jesus bhume before you get in on this and say "I'm bashing him" let me say this; his car and his pictures are awesome, however when you post something like this on such a prolific site showing how to install something in such a dangerous manner, that's just messed up!
So chill the hell out and stop attacking the guy for building his car in the way that he wants.
Quite frankly it's appalling that even some of the top end time attack cars in Japan have shitty bolt-in or non-existent roll cages and poorly installed harnesses (among other things). I would be tempted to drill my own holes and use the eyelets exclusively, but those bendable brackets still look fine for an application like this and should be at least as strong as the stock belt setup.
This is what almost everyone in Japan does with harnesses and while it’s not optimal, it’s borderline passable. I went through this dilemma, I wanted to install my takata into my s13 and use the rear seatbelt mounting points, however after reading a lot online I decided to wait until I have a harness bar or cage and stick with the stock belt in the meantime, because so many people on here don't know what the fuck they're talking about I'll put it in caps THE FACTORY SEAT BELT IS SAFER THAN A HARNESS INSTALLED LIKE THIS!!! You installed them wrong and put it up on a high traffic, influential, trendy website which some may use as a baseline for their own ill-guided installs.
Maybe stronger actually since the force of an impact would be spread around 4 points rather than 2. I will be looking into a harness bar in the future so any advice on what is out there would be much appreciated.
But now to sort of do a full turn and back Dino up a bit, I know for a fact the installation manual says that this is an acceptable way to install the harness HOWEVER it then goes on to show acceptable angles for the shoulder straps and the lap belts which will NEVER be met using the stock mounting points!
Sure, you can tell yourself you're doing it right and that you can't be held responsible for what happens to others, but you're not doing it right.
Don't just blindly follow and trust what you read on the internet get info from as many different sources as possible and people that have actually had experience with this kind of thing, and BHUME people are using what may seem like a "harsh" tone because this is serious shit!
