Awesome Scot!!!

I love the factory look to be honest and it matches the alloys perfectly well.

Please give us a bit more feedback as to the ease of the installation and if the supplied wiring and switch all fitted well with no hassles. Maybe also talk about the way you got the hyper rails wired-up.

Please don't be shy to plug the shop that fitted them for you, as other members in the area may choose to use this installer in the future. emoticon

Re:


The wiring harness is not long enough to go from back to front but the switch you get looks factory fitted and I will post more about this subject on the week end and i will take some shots of the switch for you all!

Hi Scot,

I am still waiting for the information to come from you about the hyper rails and their installation, so I am hoping you can do that soon because Alan and I will soon have our hyper rails fitted and any additional tips will greatly help us.

I have already spoken to Tony (Stephen's installer) and he was very helpful indeed. Thanks Stephen for sending me his contact details.

As for the installation Jalal the body shop took care of that and all I do know is that they were able to do it with out removing the roof lining so I have sent you a email with the shops contact details so you can find out more!

Well, this information seems to be contradicting what Stephen's installer told me on the absolute need to remove/drop the roof lining to avoid creasing it, so it is interesting to see how they managed to get to the bolts holding the roof rails in place without removing the roof lining.

How did they run the wires to the front?

The more info you post about this here, the better it will be for future members deciding to get this mod done.

Re:


I have sent you all the details and if you are wanting to go with Stephens information then feel free!

The wiring runs inside of the hyper rails to the rear left hand side tail light and then goes thru the factory grommet and from there the wiring is run along the inside of the car to the front passengers area then passed thru the dash to the drivers side and then hooked up to switch which was located nearest to drivers door in the blank spot!

This was the best option as it states that in the manual you sent me Jalal and less chance of any water leaking into car!

There are no bolts holding the racks down as they clip in not bolt in and will post a pic for you as soon as I can of the factory rails to support this!

Hope this helps!

Regards Scot

Please do Scot, as the service manual clearly shows the roof rails being attached to metal brackets which are being bolted down to the roof and held by a number of nuts from inside the roof

Image

Having said that, if your installer decided to leave these brackets in place or used them to fit the base of the hyper roof rails, then that is fine as well and it will be good to know that, as it will certainly make the installation process much easier (and quicker).

Re:


Well while I am trying to get photo's please feel free to contact Cameron at Cameron's Body works PH 07 3277 3475 Coopers Plains for precise information on the install!

I have already taken off the front passengers side scuff plate to show the wiring running thru and tried to take a shot from the top to show where the wiring is running in behind the tail light and the bottom of the actual rails and from the diagram above he took out the cover plates to get to the brackets and worked from there I suppose!

Regards Scot

So Scot, where are these photos (for the forum)? You keep saying that you'll get them, but nothing to show ...... emoticon


The main reason why Tony (Perfection Bodyworks, Wynnum) removed the roof lining, was to move the drill hole closer to the original roof rail hole (he said that the instructions directed him to drill the hole out from the original rail line. Tony made a valid point that if I ever wanted to remove the hyper roof rails and replace them with the originals, there would be a bloody great bolt hole exposed and it would look tacky with a rubber grommet in it).
Also, the interior roof lining needed to be removed to gain access to the rear bolts of the original rails.

Another thing that Tony mentioned, Jalal, was that if you are concerned that your installers may not be able to remove and replace the roof lining without creasing it, then perhaps they're not professional enough emoticon (surely, this sort of procedure is commonplace and shouldn't be mucked up?)

Anyway, not every installer is going to follow the exact same procedures. Each will have their own slant on the situation. Needless to say, I am extremely pleased with the outcome and I would honestly recommend Perfection Bodyworks for any other painting/body repair work that anyone may need.
