Well, I just bought a G-Force 5-point harness, for racing at BlackHawk Farms Raceway in Beloit, WI, in the Midwest Council's High-Speed autocross series this weekend, where "prepared" cars are required to have 4-point harnesses. (I figure I'd just not use the anti-sub strap, since I don't have a hole in my seat for it anyway.. )
I get it today, and The shoulder belts are only about 58" long, instead of the 80" that I thought they were going to be, which would be fine if I were going to bolt these to a rollcage or something.
but I was planning on using my backseat seatbelt mounting bolts, and the metal buckles are even with my ears and neck, not a really good place, I'm thinking...
So, y'all with protege's, or other cars of similar size, what sort of belts do you have that work with this sort of setup (rear seatbelt mounting points being used)?
And, Does anyone know where I can get longer shoulder straps that will fit this camlock buckle, or do I have to send the whole thing back to get a new harness in 2 days?

is a 'co-drive' a brand of harness? or do you mean find someone to ride along with instead of racing? (duh, i'm tired today..)
I emailed the guy I bought it from, and he said that the H-style harness they sell has the longer shoulder straps. I was going to get one of those in the first place, but they aren't getting new inventory until next week. Although, he emailed me back 4 hours later (WAY after business hours) and said that the H harnesses are only 10 bucks more, and he'll ship me the shoulder harnesses when they come in if I return my current ones. Not a bad deal. BUT I still need to get a working harness by thursday night at the latest.
