Those just look like molded plastic racing seats. Do your back a favor and get a true high back suspension seat.

They do look like back breakers haha.
Few more questions.

1) What "point" harness would be best? 3,4,5?
2) Where does all the "points attach"?

Obviously "best" would be a five point harness. 2 over the shoulder, a lap belt and a anti-submarine belt that keeps you from sliding down and underneath the lap belt in the event of a collision. However, they can be a little uncomfortable to wear all the time if the rig is a DD. This can lead to the absolute worse thing you could do which would be not fastening the belt or not wearing the belt properly to allow for more comfort while DD. A 4 point belt is commonly used (that's what I use) and are very effective at restraining the driver and 1 fewer strap to buckle up when your hopping in and out of the rig frequently. A 3 point is essentially a 4 point but the 2 shoulder straps converge into 1 at the mounting point.

As far as proper mounting locations, that is to be determined based on your roll cage, what seats are used, and size and height of the user. The lap belts need to be mounted so that the lap belt rides on the occupants hip bone and does not ride up onto the belly or down onto the thighs. The shoulder belts should attach at an angle of 0-10* down from the top of the occupants shoulders, behind the seat and as close as possible to the back of the seat to eliminate stretch. All mounting points IMO should be double shear using grade 8 fasteners.

Here are two very good links to learn about different harnesses and how to properly mount them.

I have one in a stalled project.

IIRC it came from Summit Racing. A suspension seat is more ideal.
