I'm still working on the radio install, waiting on parts, but I've been busy.
Over the last couple of weekends, I've been building and rebuilding the roof rack setup, to go on top of my Twist Dynamics canvas top.
I wanted something light, easy to take on and off and affordable. We probably will only use this a couple of times a year, so it didn't make sense to invest a lot of money into it (would rather save that for other mods).
5/16 hex bolt 2 inches long x4
5/16 locking washing x4
Clamps are mounted to the canvas frame and the square tube is sized and marked for cutting/drilling.
Drilled out and tapped the clamps, pretty sure I drilled them for 1/4" and tapped at 5/16", I doubt I used a 9/32", but guess it's possible. If anyone tries to recreate this, ping me and I'll go pull the bit out of the set I used
Mounted the clamps back after they were modified, left them a bit loose so I can move them by hand for final alignment of the tubing.
Tubing is cut to length and drilled
I checked the fit and then pulled it back off to paint. Next we install.
Let me know if you have any questions.
