    Roof rails

    My legnum doesn't have roof rails.

    Is it possible to fit them myself?
    Where do they fix to?
    I dont fancy drilling holes in the roof though, so if that's the case then I'll leave the car as it is

    Thanks

    They do have threaded mounting points just need to drill outer skin, should be able to see where they are by lifting roof lining.

    You wait, this is where I screw the roof of my car up ha ha

    What's the phrase? Measure 500,000 times and drill once

    Thanks very much for the info

    Yep, as said, the internal reinforcement shows the locations you need to drill.

    Advice: make sure you get hold of the rails first and then measure the distances to the center support. I have seen different sizes.
