    Hello all,
    I have a Fiamma luggage rack fitted to my Ace Milano, and am looking for a pair of roof rails to fit accross the van, on the 30mm diameter bars on the luggage rack to allow me to carry a top box .
    If any one knows if the roof rails are available and from where, or has any better idea's how to carry a top box without drilling holes the van roof, i'm listening.

    Many thanks for your help ...................... Mike

    Hi Mike

    I would fit the roof box direct onto the roof with sticky mastic tape, make sure the front of the box is against the roof bars then bolt through the box and through the roof bar, no fixing through the roof is required as the tape sticks it to the roof and the bolts hold it in place.

    Fixing the box to bars across the rack will make the box very high and unstable
