DIY Roof Rack Cross Bars / Crossbars

In a pinch, we needed some cross bars to haul a loaded felted cargo carrier. We underestimated the amount of stuff we were taking on vacashee-own The cargo carrier has 2 straps on each of the four sides. I was concerned about tie down places on the front and back since we were traveling 10+ hours. Got some PVC from the hardware store and cut it down. I left them longer so to get them in you have to flex them with a little force. I used two up front to be sure. Once in, they were not coming out. A little noisy in the front but they worked great. We have since purchased the regular bars and take them on and off when we need to.

Getting an error about - Sorry, you are not allowed to post links - put the pictures in the Album - finally got to work, you need at least 5 posts to be able to post links. These should work now.
