Hey guys,
Got a rack with my car. Full cafe four legs and a single support piece linking all legs. The tie down system involves a square u bolt 75 wide 6mm diameter and 50deep.
Cannot find anywhere and it's giving me the ****s.

Two options, find the bloody u bolts or cut legs off and mount onto three rhino bars.

Questions?
Can someone find the bolts?
Anyone know if you can use gq rhino legs on a gu?

So what your asking is if someone knows where you could by the U-bolts and if GQ rhino racks fit GUs too.

Cannot help you with the U-bolts but have you tried your local auto parts shop (eg. Autobarn, Bursons, Supercheap Auto)?

Yes GQ roof racks should fit GUs as they have the same guttering system.

Tried all local auto shops, the size is just wrong for everything they have on shelf.

I was told gq had different legs?

GQ and GU different gutter widths.
But don't they have the same mounting system, therefore as long as the width is adjustable then they can be mounted?

I assumed it would be ok as long as they are adjustable,

Anyone else know if they are inter changeable?

Any local industrial supply shop will stock these, or will definatly be able to source some for you, Coventry fasteners/Thomas warburton etc.

One option is to buy some M6 Stainless Allthread and bend it to shape in a vice. I did this for my roof bar system and it worked a treat.
Cheers
