Forum announcement - 13 April 2018 - some images on the forum are hosted by a service called PostImage. PostImage had their primary domain name suspended so any links to images hosted on that server are temporarily unavailable. The good news is that images are still available on the Internet, but instead of being hosted at postimg.org, they are at postimg.cc. We can probably fix this at our end by automatically amending all PostImage URLs in the database to point to the location, but I'm hoping PostImage will sort this out themselves. In the meantime, you can view the images by manually changing the URLs from postimg.org to postimg.cc. Thanks!

cool, now i know what all mine are.

LH8 Roll Bar and Roll Cage Installation
LK1 Seating Capacity Alteration and Seat Belt Installation
LD1 Rear Axle Replacement
LD2 Differential Substitution
LA1 Engine Substitution

im a bit curious as to why i dont have an LB1 Transmission Substitution

also does LK1 cover me for having a harness rather than a seatbelt? in the eyes of mr policeman does that code make the harness legal for me to wear instead of a normal seatbelt?

Even though harness are safer than a normal seat belt, especially when your upside down, they are not street legal.

Actually they are legal if they are a 3 point system.

The catch is, For the stip you need a 4 point. So its a choice between strip or street.

So your half right.

I dont really care what taffic police have to say, And neaither should you.

If the DOT ok it, Your fine. Last time i checked with the DOT (in QLD) 3 point harness's were legal.

If you have trouble with the police, You should inform the DOT regardless and the local police station about an officer wrongfully fining you. That is, If they issued a fine.
