    I’ve always loved the European Scud’s with OEM 4-point racing harness. I saw two sets come up for sale and I snatched them up. Took a while to do the install but it finally turned out beautiful. It was a pita to do but worth it to me.


    I know there are opinions on 4-point but I just us to have them. I retained the OEM lap belt too for safety and regulation purposes.

    I stripped the interior. Cut the cutouts in the OEM panels. Drilled the holes for the harness. Fabricated brackets and finally put everything together.

    I have an extra set if anyone is interested.

    This is really cool. It’s one of my to do lists apart from carbon fiber racing seats, but was thinking it would be a lot of work and cost a fortune...

    Approximately how much does the whole conversion cost? (parts and labour included)

    Now you need a roll bar the two go together , if you want one a good friend of mine has the factory mounting plates for the roll bar and the roll bar .

    The worst part of the job I assume are those seat bolts.

    I paired my oem scuderia 4-pt harnesses with a 2-pt titanium rollbar that mounts to the seatbelt mounts, everything is non-intrusive and 100% reversible. Like Sky Hye, I wanted an approach that allowed me to still have full use of the oem seatbelts...particularly handy for passengers who don't want to deal with harnesses so I highly recommend it. I also recommend getting the oem harness cushions; makes wearing the harnesses more comfortable, just take the cushions off when you use a hans device.

    Highly recommend this mod (if you're so fortunate to be able to source the oem parts, it's unobtainium through regular channels), and imho just makes the event that more of an event.

    And oh, above all the performance gains are tremendous.
    Based on established Ferrari formula, each extra cavallino you add to the car is good for +10hp, so w harnesses, cushions you get an instant +100hp!!! 4x from the harnesses, 4x from the cushions and 2x embossed on the harness clasps =D

    Just as long as you understand that you cannot safely drive with the harness, without a roll bar, and if your SCUD didnt come with a roll bar you cannot install one either as it wont have the factory chassis welded base plates
