Couple more things I wanna add to the tray , 2X under tray boxes on the departure angles to hide the chassis and neaten it up a bit :)

was pulled over by the cops and official warning was given about my tyres sticking our from my car so I had to add front flares , once again from ARB . they do look nice on the car for something I never wanted .

needed to get myself a UHF so I could keep in contact easier with my mates instead of using my handheld .
So my lovely girlfriend got me a 5watt Uniden super slim UHF for Christmas and I was stoked .
so I fitted it straight away ..

My Christmas present to myself this year 2013 was a rhinorack pioneer roof rack which the tracks where to be mounted 2 weeks ago but most people seen what happened there ! grrr still so angry
(Posted a thread ANGRY CUSTOMER) for those that don't know .

and here's just a brief picture of my "gutter mount" tracks and I'm sure you'll spot the problem .
Image

Once my roof has been fixed and i have mounted it all myself !! Properly .
I'll post updated pictures :)

ROOF RACK TIME .
After having trouble with others fitting my roof racks , I finally got my car back from the panel beaters with a fixed up roof.
so instead of having someone fit it . I decided to do it myself therefore if I stuff it up it's my own fault but because it's my car I'll triple check it !

anyways here's the standard finished product :)
NOW to wait for the extra parts which include front rail , shovel & hi lift mount , awning , light bar & a couple little eye bolts

How does it sound when driving?

I'm looking at getting same setup that you got! Just want flat rack for throwing gear up when I go hunting. Is it easily removed for scooting round town?

Lux is looking sweet mate too, nice work on the tray!

Keep it coming

I can't hear it while I drive no whistling

& very easily removed . although you may need a second person to help you lift it down to not scratch the roof (it only weighs 20kgs)
I got it for hunting aswell as I have a short tray and don't want blood on my swag haha

I'm going to keep mine in for a while see how the fuel goes I'll give an update

Nice build thread, tray looks nuts.
Q: Is the tray standard size or is it a couple of hundred mm longer?.

Take delivery of mine on 13/2 and reading your build thread has not made the wait any easier.
keep up the good work.
