Roof Racks

Has anyone found the right profile roof racks to fit the standard rails? I have had a look at a few in my local SupaCrap, the Nissan Navara looks like it might be close.

Merry Xmas fellow Stageans:cheers:

Did someone say Navara?

Hi Duncan, Merry Xmas, do you have a Navara handy that you can measure the profile of the roof rails? Surely Nissan didn't make a unique profile just for Stageas:cheers:

Yes, very handy.  Exactly what do i need to measure?  It currently has roof racks on as well :D

You convinced my out of a Stagea so I got a navara to tow with instead ;)

I didn't think I was convincing you out of a Stagea, I really like mine. Except I can't find a decent tow bar manufacturer in Sydney. But that's not the Stagea's fault.

The standard Stagea roof rails are triangular shape. Using the verniers, they are 35 mm on the outside and 30 mm on the underside and inside. That's ignoring the rounded corners. Maybe compare that with your Navara.:cheers:

Sydney Kid, Thule make very nice racks to clamp onto the roof rails on Stageas, the good ones (aerodynamic) are about $180 per cross bar and then you can get heaps of 'bolt-ons' like ski, bike carriers etc.

Thanks, where can I get Thule stuff from? :)

Hi Prank, do they have a listing for Stageas? If not what did you ask for? :)

The Thule part numbers for the Stagea are as follows:

Thule Foot pack #755

Thule Aero Bar #861 (120cm bar)

The Thule International parts manual lists the wrong size bar for Stagea 97 on - it lists the longest bar which is too wide for the car. The above part number fits - I have them on my car now. Cost is around $250.

:D

S1 and S2 should be the same as the changes made to the car were cosmetic and any changes to the physical cabin structure would be too expensive to implement mid life which is why lots of cars get nose and bum jobs.

so in theory unless nissan was pouring money down the sink on mid life upgrades then yeah they should fit.

anyone post up a pic of the roof rack on their car pretty please :)

:nyaanyaa:

I had 135 mm bars on my series 1 and accommodated a 6oo litre top box and a sea kayak if I offset the kayak to one side of the rails, using Thule kayak holders. This gave me no problems and I drove thousands of km's like that loaded up.

Now can anyone help me re the M35 and fitting a roof rack that is not the Nissan issue one?

I tried Thule and they have no standard fittings that suit. Prices are steep if I have to adapt a Thule but I wish to use my Thule fittings that I already have.

If I drop the $700 odd that I need for the Nissan one can anybody confirm that it is the satandard Euro sized bar and will suit my attachments? Or can I just get the roof fitting and use my existing bars?

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I just got a set of roof racks for my Series 2 Stagea and wanted to advise other owners that these fit perfectly;

"Jetbag" brand. Owned and made by Thule (Sweden), 3 yr warr

Model- Complete 6501

Black 126cm long with black foot kit

Lockable

75 Kg rating (very good)

Got them through these guys based in NSW - $105 delivered (less than 1/2 the price of ROLA, THULE and the other major brands).

More info here.

Apperently the same as the current model Toyota RAV 4 with roof rails.

    • I do have a tiny tiny misfire occasionally but I think it's because I got a little fuel down into a plug tube so I'll pull the coils out and see if I can dry those out. 
    • Ok, so here the embarrassing 'fess up' post. Here's the crack, or broken part of the old valve cover. Pretty obvious break and in hindsight it's quite the face palmer 🤦‍♂️ but let me explain why I didn't think this was a problem. This side part of the valve cover is an additional piece, it protrudes from the main valve cover and it's also where the fuel rail mounts.....  You can see the rail at the bottom and you can see this external piece hanging off the side of the cover. It almost looks sandwiched in this pic.  Here's another cover with that side piece ...  On top of this, when looking at the inside of the cover, there were no openings(*) for that section. So I really just thought I'd broken some crispy plastic mount for the fuel rail.... Until somebody drew my attention to the air openings at the BOTTOM of the cover, not INSIDE the cover. So, I had a ginormous PCV leak. The cover needed to go and I should have taken everybodies advice and got a new one in the first place. The original one is just fried, its really brittle. It was nice to have the new one be really snug in position and the screws were slightly tight to do up which was completely different to the original ones that almost undid themselves.    
    • Pulled out this pile of shit, will be refreshed soon enough. Had coolant hit my face and I accidentally tasted it.  It's sweet.
    • Looks awesome. Well done. I'd love to drive Laguna Seca! 
    • This video is great, the enthusiasm is infectious and it's kind of cute. It's great to see these things being used properly on track, it reminds me of track days of old. It is a bit funny seeing everyone so excited about Skylines, whereas here they're all considered a bit nuggety or shitboxy. If this seems odd to you mr OP, imagine all of us being this giddy about seeing 30 C5 Vettes on a track at once place, full of influencers taking their videos and posting for clout. That said, you did a great job conveying the fun and excitement of a track day, getting out there and just having some damn fun.
