Re: Hyper Roof Rails with Lights
With a GREAT helping hand from Tague, I now have the genuine nissan cross bars on my hyper roof rails. Thanks a million mate!
They came with the fitting instructions and a template to cut the 4 plastic covers that go on top of the 4 fixing points of the bars.
I was a bit scared cutting them, as any mistake, would have resulted in any of these covers getting damaged and I didn't fancy my chances to score a cheap replacement from the dealer.
Fitting the cross bras themselves was the most easy part. 2 bars and 4 screws and that was done!
Cutting the plastic covers took most of this morning, as the job had to be precise.
Anyway, they're on and they look great.
It is worth noting that unlike the standard roof racks for other models, these cross bars are only rated to carry 50Kg max. (compared to 70Kg) because each cross bar is only being attached in place by ONE bolt on each side.
OK, so this has finished the cross bars project, but I felt there was something else missing in the hyper roof rails combination LOL
After driving around for a while with the spoiler I had and which had the LED brake light, I somewhat got used to it, so I thought I'll do something similar to the hyper roof rails and make them stand-out even more
I got this brake light from eBay for around 35 bucks posted from the US and it is awesome and VERY easy to install. 3 small holes in the aluminium spoiler of the hyper roof rails and it was all fitted. The wires run inside the spoiler as it is hallow and comes out nicely where the tail lights are. The wires are all hidden.
Am pretty happy with the result
