.. i already had most of the rear panels, etc, already removed. Took little time for me to remove my own pillar OEM panels and install the c-pillar "bar".... i'm a noob on these Honda cars and mods so i can only offer my opinions.

As u can see the mounting bracket is rectangular and larger than the seat belt mounting round hole that is in the OEM c-pillar panel. Some cutting of the OEM panels is required to mount the square bracket for the c-pillar bar.

** I recommend/suggest that u actually remove it so you can make a clean precise, tight fit = customize = for your own or "show mod" application. Then reinstall the panels, seats,etc.... and finally the c-pillar bar/seat belt bolts. Unless your cutting/install skills are better than mine and my skillz are not hard to beat...lol. You could attempt to cut the panels w/o removing them.. A small Dremel could do it no problem.

My photos simply show how the bracket should be mounted to the "body" of the c-pillar. I felt this was important for safety so everyone knew how the bracket def needs to mount. It kinda fits two distinct ways..just feels more solid in the right position against the body. Sorry, i didn't use my panels. I actually had no need to reinstall those pieces at this time.

i really dont c how this bar does anything for the handling. its the strut towers that stress under tight turns and bumps. if it the car was flexing from the c-pillars then ur car would be focked up.

your whole car flexes on tight turns, also on the coupe the seat belt brackets are only a few inches away from the top of the strut tower....

think about it, the c pillar is practially part of ur quarter panel. if this part of ur car was flexing then ur paint would chip, your windows would crack, etc. i honestly think it is a waste of money mod, otherwise i would have been the first to purchase one. rear strut bar on the other hand.....

texas is treatin me ok, too damn hot, i miss NYC weather.

did you install it under the seatbelt like how wheelman had it? or did you install it under the gold bolt but over the triangular piece?

i installed it so that the bar would be connected to the frame of the car...so basically, the took the seatbelt off and installed it and then put the seatbelt over the end link.

i dunno but i've been told thats the incorrect way to install it and that it should go over the seatbelt and under the yellow bolt..

I dunno either, the directions i got were in Asian characters. It just made sense to me to install it that way.... it could be wrong. Im sure theres a phone number listed somewhere on the directions that came with the bar..can someone call and get directions for us....maybe,lol.





Bump for DRIVEN = still fo sale, but @ $160.00 = my cost is your cost.
