    Hi all..

    Managed to source some roof rails (the ones that run the length of the roof) and need a bit of advice.

    Going to be collecting them in the next few days and they are still on the car. My question is are they going to be easy enough for me to the off..

    I have requested that I also have the black trim as I assume this will be different to mine.

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Chris.

    Since I will be doing a 5 hour round trip would be nice to have a bit of an idea what I need to do when I get there.

    i havnt fitted or removed the full length or any roof bars to an FR-V for some time. if I remember right the higher spec had the rails as standard? most Hondas use the same principal. regards the gutter trim if the bloke is selling them with the kit that saves you a lot of trouble.

    thanks @Beefy ,,I did make a point of asking for the trim aswell.
    had a bit further look into it and appears I will need a torx 30 , , will take plenty of tools and bits just incase.

    This may help as the previous video seems different to this.
    The end caps, 27/34 and 29/36 are a top and sides piece in one, with what seems to be an under piece to cover the end bracket. I couldn't prize out the middle cap, no 30 to see what the fixture is. You may be able to enhance this further at their website. It looks like you need to get the gutter mouldings from the bottom of the windscreen to the back, to save cutting yours. Might need to take some plastic trim removal tools with you as well. Good luck. B__4210.
