Boarding roof rack

Recommended Posts

The one on my 90 just sold, was fitted with little U bolts around the rails of the roof rack, to avoid wrecking the galv on the rack.

Put some foam between the board and the metalwork to insulate it otherwise the drumming will drive you up the bluddy wall!

15mm pipe insulation is a good choice as it wraps around the bars

Damn, wish I'd thought of that when I did mine!

I used U clamps. Tip for the wise - use nyloc nuts as well. I wasn't thinking straight and ended up with half a dozen loose nuts rolling around the roof :huh:

Also cut some holes in the ply to allow air to pass through, otherwise you end up with a big wing on the roof trying to take off.
