    Morris minor roof rack

    Hi I'm wanting a roof rack for my moggy and this is the only one I can find (Roof Rack - Original 1950's Style (Not suitable for Traveller) Supplied in primer. U.K. P&P £18.50 - SEE NOTES - from ESM Morris Minors UK). I was wondering if you have to drill holes into the roof to fit it or does it just clamp to the gutters? Thanks 🚗.

    sorry to but in, anyone seen a long one with 4 suckers per side before i make one? my escort estate has 8 sucker marks which have put 8 little dents in the roof where the clamps were too tight or it had too much weight on it
    either way if i can find another roof rack i'd fit it. cheers, neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Neil it wouldn't suprise me if it had two of the smaller racks on it, our avenger estate had that when I was a lad.
    Just a thought.

    As an aside, long time ago in the 60s perhaps, I was following a Moggy with a roof rack on top. The driver had carelessly left a length of rope dangling from the rack, a leftover from some recent unloading. The traffic halted at a roundabout and as bad luck would have it the rope end trailed right under one of my front tyres. As the moggy pulled away the rope tensed and pulled the rack clean off. Luckily the rack didn't hit my vehicle so not all bad. I think it straightened the gutter clips somewhat. Moral: always tidy up the loose ends before proceeding with the next job.
    Greatest discombobulations to all my readers.
