Blinds arrived, good quality, Fiat part number etc. These people seem OK to deal with.

Re: New Accessories available

These are on eBay now for 75+15p&p which is great value... I think.
Item number: 220139355604

I have asked about all black versions to suit a standard 'non-bling' Doblo and he's hopeful they would be out in September. If there were a waiting list I'd ask to be on it :-)

Tango, isn't there a liquid plastic you could paint on? I seem to remember a few years back having a can of something which I dipped all my screwdrivers in to insulate the shafts & some metal-handled pliers also got the treatment.
It may have been called plastic coat, plasti-cote...? I think there is something out to refresh plastic coated garden furniture.

Re: New Accessories available

I'm pretty sure Halfrauds sell something alone the same lines....

The bars do look nice, and I think it would add to my Doblo. What do you guys think... or would it make it over the top?

Re: New Accessories available

Well, they've just arrived.
Takes but a few minutes to fit them.
The ends come off which allows for a little adjustment, I was surprised that the middle support isn't bolted to the roof but aside from that everything was straightforward.

Re: New Accessories available

Any pictures, would be quite interested to see!

Their e-bay listing is quite conflicting as it shows some square shaped bars and some round-ish bars... which ones do you actually get?

Re: New Accessories available

Mine are a quadrant-shaped cross-section.
Because the mid support is offset from the middle, there is only one way the bars will fit BUT, because the ends come off (they fell off as I removed them from the wrapping) these look to fit any end.
Looking at the view from my bedroom window, the rear brackets seem to have dimpled the roof slightly. The feet of the supports aren't the right fit for the recesses built into the roof. When I removed the plastic screws I discovered a thin washer under each so I took this off and used it when I mounted the rails - hoping that this would help keep water out - maybe I'm being a bit paranoid but the rubber bases provided with the rails don't sit tight to the roof in some places.
I also found that the plugs for the bolt holes were a very loose fit so I put a drop of Uhu around them to provide a water seal & hold them in place
Here you can see the dimples...

And the way the feet overlap the recesses...


But the overall effect looks great..

Re: New Accessories available

Hmmm, I'm not so keen now. Looks like those bars are made for something else and have been made to fit by altering the length of the tubing.

What a shame, back to the to Fiat Alloy bars I think.

Yes, the footprint is definitely larger than the roof recesses - which is a real shame - I also noted that when I attached the rear foot, I had to pull down the front foot a few inches - which explains why the roof has dimpled. (and I tried swapping the feet around but that made no difference)

Aside from that, I bought them specifically for the odd times when I need to carry sheet materials or long lengths of wood & they've already served their purpose.

the bars look good but they should be made to fit alot better.
A set of 3 genuine fiat alloy bars sold on ebay last week for 51. I did list them in 'auction watch'. I should've bid on those. You can get a pair from fiat for about 80.
