My mesh roof tray makes a noise once i hit 80km/h. I never thought of it affecting mpg but i guess it would. Good point.

was overnight near lake with my new roof rack , which was empty all time, because i dont have or need such many stuff , not for 2 people at least. but i tried to put sleeping bags and tent on roof to give it kinda purpose look haha



sleeping in car this time not in tent. had air matress which i using in tent wasnt sure will it fit in car , but it did almost. just needed some air down so those sides can fold some to fit in. but when it fit then it was so comfy sleep on it. i even could go more high to car front so i could get more room for legs. was amazing


this all led in morning to those views


i thought if i will like red parts on roof rack ill keep it red. i think it looks ok im getting used to it. its something different from all those black roof rack i see on cars

you'll end up melting your bumper with that exhaust.

Ask me how I know

could be but ill wait until that starts happen. what it needs to make there so hot ? driving long time on low gear at high revs or standing with engine idle in place ? tried those couple times already and nothing was melting there. but ill check that from time to time and see . then will change something to stop it happen.

roof rack was just painted one time . and not properly i guess. after rainy night rust started to show on places where was hard to paint. i guess i should sprayed it and not do it with brush .

that exhaust is not so close to bumper. maybe diff mufflers gives out diff temps. mine is not sport muffler for loud sound.

my cheap and simple way to power fridge when im not driving. no need dual battery system, lots sockets and switches. i just used cable that was with my 220v inverter and then some cheap 12v socket adapter, i cut them both and soldered together. so now when im driving i can use fridge from socket that is in trunk and when im not driving and away from car if i want my drinks stay cool there i can use my second battery on it.
