Project Roadster: Typical Scene Kid

In another bid justify not buying a sensible car, I needed to up the luggage capacity of the Roadster; with having to carry photo gear, parts, camping stuff and, in the not too distant future, flat pack furniture I thought I better get a rack.   I had toyed around with making something, but before I fired up the mig I came across these Hanirack inflatable roof racks.  Yeah, I know, it’s not as cool as a Thule, but for the Roadster it’s ideal.  Because it’s inflatable, it spreads the load over the whole roof and it rolls up  neatly into a little bag which I can stow in the boot!

Yep, I’ve gone practicality mad….

Plus racks always look cool….

    Did not know that type of rack yet, thanks. Looks like a good way to haul my photography gear as well. Now I need to get a hardtop it this does not work on the trunk.

    What kind of rack is that? Could be very useful for me.

    What about those chromed metal ones that go over the boot lid? Were they factory options? I’m sure they would be better than putting stress on the roof
