Re: weekend roof bar.

Hey! Not a million miles from here!

The roofbars attach it looks like from inside. Suprised they need painting.. The anthracite finish seems very hard wearing.

Might need a bit more detail on the activities of the fuel gauge.

P.S. what colour is your Marea, might have seen it about.

Re: weekend roof bar.

To remove the roof bars first remove the tailights, this will expose the nuts that secure the rear mounts, you then need to remove the headlining inside the car which will expose the nuts for the front mounting. Taking out the roof lining is a real pain in the arse, I would just do the work with the roof bars in place.
