bar to mount racing harness on... need ideas

ok I just want to do a single tube bar that runs across the back of my cab to mount my 4 point racing harnesses on.

what is the easiest way to do this and make it... and for little money.
where would I mount it and what would I have to drill through without make it look crappy?


anyone with pics would help too!

Thanks, i wanna get this done tomorrow probably

x2 that is not SAFE at all. you need to have someone professional build you a seatbelt bar. Plus it doesnt look tall enough. The bar needs to be 10-15* lower then your shoulders.

This is your life you talking about, there is a reason those materials are made for plumbing and not fabrication. Please for your sake take that out and have a proper one made.
