T4srus look nice but just don't like that gap - can this be adjusted or altered?

Or anyone please point me in the right direction?

Does someone have a pic of the one's Jeff sell's?

MANY THANKS.:ILU:

t4srus ones fitted on mine.

the gap can be adjusted a bit as they bolt on with 3 bolts (2 at the front and one at the back)
front will adjust in and out, back up and down.

how big a gap r u looking at?
don't have pics of jeffs sorry

Cheers for that lardy - cracking looking van. but for me, thats too much gap. I don't really want to see a space between! So half inch maybe. That Van Style one's look closer but are alot more money.

I can see me making my own at this rate.

Hers's a picture of the bars Jeff supplies. Still a gap like T4srus ones. Have you looked at the ones with chequerplate that covers the gap?

Hi,
If it didn't have that gap you would have to put everything in through the back door as you wouldn't be able to open the side one.T:

Yeah! Of course, didn't think of that........ There does seem to be a different size of gap from bar to bar though.

Super thanks!
Bodydrop... I'm after one of those deflectors and some side window deflectors also... do you offer any discount for forum members or is that just being cheeky!
Apologies for the hi-jack!

I can sort you out adjustable stainless side bars so you can make them as tight as you like or poke'em out like the wings on chitty chitty bang bang.
they're top quality with welded stainless steel ends.
pm me if your interested.

just to chip in tho.. lol

I got a set off the forum that also had this gap at the rear, i filed a 2" slot in the bracket so that the bar was within 1mm of the body as it was at the front. i then nipped them up and have been like that since, with no issues with the slide door or anything so far
