First post here! I'm currently building a Spec Miata and installing a MiataCage.
I'm 6'3" and 240lbs so cramming everything in is proving tricky. I have already installed the 5X Racing Drop Pan kit and am now putting in the seat shoulder harness bar. Due to the drop pan and how much I have to recline my seat to get low enough for my head/helmet to escape the wrath of the main hoop, the shoulder harness bar has to be mounted quite low. Unfortunately the mounting points for the soft top are in the way!
It would appear from the Spec Miata Rule Book (Section 20.2.11 "Other than to provide for the installation of required safety equipment or other authorized modifications, no other driver/passenger compartment alterations or gutting is permitted.") that modifying the soft top mounting points to get the shoulder harness bar in the right location is permissible.
A search of the web has truned up a couple of pictures of cage installs where this appears to have been done:

Heavier Mod: https://www.google.c...ZKZVigxco-OfkM
Is my interpretation OK, or will this get me in trouble with the tech inspectors?
