FTC ~ Roof Rack–Rhino-Rack USA Vortex Trackmount Roof Rack [update], 10/07

I will be delighted to have the rack installed. It will happen…

Not yet, but soon!

Okay! I worked [unsuccessfully] many hours yesterday and today with various “hardened” drill bits in an effort to get through the #$@* roof above the cab. I have a small fortune invested in various drill bits. The seller thinks they should work; but, the do not.

I conferred with Rhino-Rack, Colorado again. Their chief installer called the parent company in Australia for a solution–use a 1mm Carbide Bit to drill a pilot hole and go larger from there up to the 5mm hole I need for the rivets. He also referred me to a local fabricator who may drill the holes for me. I called. They can see my Monday morning.

In spite of the woes, this will be done and the van will be just perfect. Remember, Rome was not built in a day.

Thanks to the crew at Rhino-Rack, Colorado
