removable roof racks

hey guys,

I need some sort of roof racks to put my surf boards (and wake boards) on, but I dont like the look of them, so want something removable.

What have other people bought/improvised with?? any price guides or home inventions would be great! I really want to go tomorrow if possible!

cheers

steve

Re: removable roof racks

I got some removable one. Cant remember the brand, and i dunno where i put em.

they just attach at the top of the door openings. One runs between front doors, other between rears.
U just tighten em up, and your off.

They work pretty good. I had a big old school wind surfer on it when i went on holidays (800km there). Hasnt left any marks, other than where the windsurfer was dropped on the car by someone.

I dont know how much they cost, dont think they were too bad but.

If i find out the brand ill let ya know.

Re: removable roof racks

Roof racks are (usually) removeable, so just take them off when you're finished using them. Check out your local Autobarn, Repco, Supercheap, etc.

Re: removable roof racks

most are removable yes, but how much effort is the thing, most are designed to go on, but not off in 2 seconds, I think younggun want something effective quick to put on and quick to get off without alot of tools and effort.

"So long and thanks for all the fish!"
