So, I assume this means you have them fitted and there will be pics soon ?

A bit early Kev, he only picked them up yesterday. I'd say he found somewhere to get them done and has it planned by Friday..... emoticon

Any updates Jalal,

How is the fitting going?
I was thinking that now you will have to change your badging at the rear to 'ST-LR' or something like that... emoticon

Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights


There has been a slight delay as the guys are pretty busy and doing this for me as favor, at this stage they're being colour-coded in preparation for the install.

Yeah, I was also thinking of a "model name change" LOL emoticon

Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights


Hi Guys,

My exy is undergoing major surgery since this morning and the hyper roof rails are being fitted.

The guys started on it this morning at 8am and could NOT finish the job, as there are far too much to do in one day.

I saw my exy with the new roof rails attached, except the section with the lights (that was yet to be fitted).

The interior of my exy gave me stomach aches LOL emoticon It looked as if someone thrown a hand grenade inside my exy. hehehehe

The job will be completed tomorrow and I'll post pics when it's all done.

Stay tuned!

Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights


OK Guys,

I am proud to announce that the one and only black exy with colour-coded hyper roof rails is finally here! emoticon

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

What can I say? I'm totally speechless because I expected them to look good, but in no way SO GOOOOD! emoticon

I hope Nissan Japan designers can learn from a bit from the Aussie creativity and modifications. hehehehehe

Here is my exy before it went under the operating table (with the roof racks removed)

And here is my exy transformed into some completely new model which am not sure what to call now LOL emoticon

As I expected previously, the most expensive part of this entire exercise was the fitting process and my estimate was correct. It is over 7 hours (7.5 to be exact) labour and this mainly involved removing the all plastic trims inside the car and the roof lining.

Apart from that, the rear section of the hyper roof rails fitted into an existing mounting positions of the old roof rails. The only new hole that needed to be drilled in the roof, was under the roof lights for the wiring harness and grommet to go through (so, one hole on each side of the roof was drilled)

Everything was properly sealed with silicone and anti-rust paint to prevent any future leaks or rust issues.

The hyper roof rails have been colour coded to match my exy exactly and they turned-out awesome when colour coded, as I wouldn't have liked to see that gold colour roof rails on the roof of my exy emoticon

Here is how the hyper roof rails looked when I received them from the manufacturer:

OK, so what was the final cost of this entire exercise you ask? emoticon

The grand total, which includes (the hyper roof rail kit and shipping from overseas, colour-coding and fitting locally) came to $1,800AUD

Now if I compare this total to the price Nissan quoted Tague, I think I just scored a bargain and it looks much nicer than the genuine Nissan ones emoticon

Time to get the cross bars from the dealer now, Tague, can we use your discount to score a set of these cross bars for the special price you mentioned? emoticon

P.S Pics of the roof lights in action will be posted after the Easter break, as they couldn't wire them up in time today, so I told them to leave it until after the holidays.

Mate, I have to say - I'm veerrrrry jealous emoticon

There is no way, no way at all that you could possibly put these on without colour coding them, they look sensational.

Great job. emoticon
