Look what arrived today.

Post by Erna & David on Sat May 21 2011, 15:34

No, not the long awaited engine but something just as exciting.

ROOFRACK. Very Happy


Spoke to fellow club member Keith at Viccy Farm regarding roofracks and he kindly offered to fabricate one, so took some pics and measurements of the one we wanted and as soon as he got back he sarted work on it, infact 2 racks.
Today finally picked it up and trial fitted it onto the panel and guess what it fitted like a glove in the gutters, no bending brackets to fit, Keith,s workmanship and detail is
Fantastic and i,m really chuffed. Very Happy
All thats left is getting the powder coating done when the other rack is finished and having both done at the same time, looking at getting them done in a matt mid-grey finish, and trying to find some black bungs to go in the ends.
Here is a few pics with the rack on the panel and hopefully you will agree what a great job Keith has done. oopps forgot to mention, 90% sure we will not have to take it off to get it into and out of the garage. Very Happy

Coorrr looking nice that! Well done Keith lovely work. Not surprised you're chuffed Dave & Erna - that must be one of the quickest made to order accessory anyone's had.

Imagine deposit is already paid so they would loose it Liam, agree though would be tempted to elsewhere otherwise but you will end up with a cracking engine at the end of it. I am the other way round got a nice 1776 sitting waiting for me but no van Laughing
