I finally took some time to put my 'custom roof bars' together. I wanted something nice and bought all the bits a few months ago.

I came across these quick'n easy vintage roof rack clamps at a VW event. It is a strong cast aluminium affair with an adjustable clamp. I bought some strong aluminium square tubing and some solid aluminium squares to tap into using an exhaust stud. This way the top of the bar remains completely flush.

I have some plastic end caps coming and I was looking at some large diameter shrink tubing to cover the aluminium bar and provide a nice tough finish.

I have a total of 3 bars to spread the load for something like a rooftop tent.

Very nice... I’m sure it will hold what ever you want...
I have my brown church roof basket on two Thule roof racks... but it is too high
And I don’t like the rear orientation
Of the tent
So in going to go with three or four racks...
I have been looking at a flat rack to attract to the crossbars...
I’m going to mess with it and see
