Will the rack fit inside or will I have to bolt it on some how? I have LR roof bars so either way it wont be a problem. I'll have an empty car as I'm only going down to Wisbech to terminate a fibre optic cable(kit is quite small)

Hi Ent

Rack will not fit inside,but it should be possible to tie it down to roof bars(mind paint work etc).Will take a look at my rack in morning and see best way to fit to roof bars.

Thanks again

Its no bother. It will get strapped to the roof bars using the ratchet cargo straps or I might go down in the van. Martin let me know the best way when you have tried it out tomorrow.

The G4 rack I had still had gaps down the sides of the floor, so lashing it to the roof bars would be OK. My concern would be with the length of the rack vs. the spacing of the roof bars - I'm not sure how stable the whole thing would be.

ENT

Just had a look at rack,and I think if you were prepared to centre G4 rack across roof bars and tie down really well you would have no problems,but you would have to let some of the G4 rack hang out over the back.On the standard rack it would be possible to get some large cable ties and secure roof bars and G4 rack together and to make it stable try to secure a ratchet strap or two as well.Again not sure how floor will impede you as mine has not got one.Hope we are not going to put you to too much trouble with this but I am confident you will be able to secure the rack with a bit of fiddling. Thumbs Up

Thanks to everyone again for your help on this and hope the crew on this side can return the favour someday. Thumbs Up
