    After being turned down by Lambo dealer then by
    FX Performance(for legal liability reasons)
    I finally found a Porsche race shop that agreed to
    install my 5 point harnesses. The whole damn car is aluminum
    so what his engineer came up with is..make 4 aluminum
    plates to mount the drivers and passenger belts to.

    Even a simple task can be complicated with a Lamborghini!

    Are you putting in a roll cage too? Aren't most harnesses fixed to the roll cage.
    It's pretty dangerous to have harnesses without a roll cage, and many tracks will not let you on if you have that set up.

    Correct. If the car deforms and thus the harness mount points move BUT the roll cage doesn't it can get very uncomfortable for the occupants. New (a few years ago) rules in Australian racing ensure that the seat and harnesses are mounted to the rollcage so they will all move together.

    Unfortunately it took a death before this rule was made :(
