Trying to put together a budget roof rail system

Hello folks

I got a couple of skoda roof rails chez scrappy to replace the roof rack that is currently gripped to my roof and is :*ing up my paintwork causing a bit of rust :eek:

I want to utilise the roof bars that go across but I need to find an adaptor or a way of securely fixing the bars to the rails with enough balls to carry 2 kayaks.
Any bright ideas apart from buying a Thule kit or forking out cash I don't have :D

I want your seat.............................................. ...




You will need x4 square bits of plate steel maybe 3" x 2" ish drill a hole in the corner of each then get x8 u clamps from halfrauds the ones with the thread on the ends of the U......


Place plate under roof rail........lay bar across then u clamps over bar ends through holes in plate washers and nuts.....job done should see change out of a tenner..................:ILU:
