    Mine has a seat belt buckle welded to the cage by the main hoop and another on the door bar...it is fastened at the fronty on the bar that goes down by the windshield pillar...I would have to look again because I do not run one...but the car is set up for it.

    Window Nets

    Seat belt buckles have plastic parts that melt in a fire and won't release.
    As an old circle track racer I've seen this happen. I switched to a all metal type latch. They don't cost much and are safer.
    Be fast but be safe.

    you go faster then 10.99 in that nova dont you?
    and if you do, how do you get away with not having a window net?

    Alot of tracks are pretty lax on whether you actually use it or not...



    I like the way mine is mounted because I can look over it to drive the stripe instead of trying to see through it... It has the seat belt buckle at top.

    Some mix up on the window nets, you technically donot need a window net unless you run 9.99 or faster which is the same point you need a full cage. Crossover is that if you have a full cage you have to have a window net by NHRA rules, go figure. In other words roll bar to 10.00, window net with all full cages, even if you run 12.50, with a full cage.

    Also go with the full metal buckle as mentioned above for sure.
    If it will stop raining tomorrow, i'll post some pics. of my installation, it's pretty neet and clean and i'll post the mat'l used.

    in looking at the nhra rule book, it says if you have a altered firewall or floor, which I do have both, you must have a roll cage if you go faster then 10.99
    and you have to have a window net if you have to have a cage by rules

    having a back halfed ride, I definetly dont have a stock floor

    You are right i didn't realize you altered the firewall and floor. I thought you only backhalfed the car.
