the logo on it looks like Sparco..

Are you not interested in getting a autopower cage with a harness bar? The price is pretty reasonable for them and by far the safest way to do it

looks like there is a sparco bar that can be modified to fit our cars.
Looks like I might have to end up going with a roll cage.

HPA makes a bolt in cage for the MK4. The harness bar is removable for rear passengers if desired.

Might take that route and go with the HPA roll cage.

The only thing I didn't like about my Autopower bar is that the main hoop feet terminate at body plugs in the floor so I ended up welding it into the car with reinforcement plates.

Unlikely. :)

In the TT it mounts to the point where the rear seat catches would be.

More for information - the bar seems to be set back further than some of the fabricated ones - dont know if that matters at all.

you want them close to the seats and as close to even with the harness holes as possible....

when people mount them down low (think rear seat belt mount points) they are asking for broken collar bones if said harnesses ever need to be used.

i would not do anything other than 3" wide harnesses as well

get a proper harness bar or get a cage

Yeah, unfortunately that's how I have them and I know that's trouble. So I might end up with a autopower cage.

take it to someone and have a cage made; the autopowers sit so far from the head liner....you'll be happy you did
Good stuff man, time to see anyone around NJ that can do a nice solid cage. Nothing crazy.
