The Best £15 I have ever spent on a Hi-Jet.

Post by Guest on Thu Oct 31, 2013 6:17 am

I can't remember who it was who spotted the Rear Load Shelf on E-bay ----- whether it was Logi or PFM or whoever it 
 was but anyway I am eternally grateful to you. If I had a Sword handy I would dub thee Sir !!!!

It has been the most handy piece of kit of all the hundreds of tools I have bought ( except perhaps for my Fein Saw.
 If any of you are tradesmen then you will know that they are the best tool since sliced  bread)

To return to the plot ---  apart from the untold damage it caused to my balding bonse every time I bent under to load or
retrieve a tool box ( which I very quickly rectified by putting 16 mm grey foam pipe lagging on with a few cable ties )the rack, not My Balding Bonse before any Comedian jumps in there.!!!
It has been a fantastic addition to my hard working MPV. I can get 7 or 8 Electrical Tool boxes up there and I have
protected the tinted windows from getting scratched too.

It means I can get so much more kit in and still leave the middle seats in for passengers or fold them forward for a bit more room. I had to get some Fascia board yesterday so took the  front Sunroof out and put it through there.

Thank you so much to the Eagle Eyed Genius who spotted this Fantastic Bargain.  Take a bow Sir.  cheers Very Happy drunken

Yer sporran's slipped! Anyway, I think Woody was being ironic and meant the bow that rhymes with roe as he has an arrow to send you for the damage done to his skull Laughing

I like that it was found too as it has given me an idea which I will show when done, I found some of what I need at work today so will have to snaffle it away.

Thanks for that Logi. You can stop taking a bow now--- you will end up with stomach cramp mate. 
I have made up some brackets to just drop the rack on so it takes seconds to take out and am also going to hinge the  front so I can put timber right through to the front.

Morning Sir Logi. I see you have just logged online ( or should it be just 
Logi-ed on ? Rolling Eyes ).

No idea, I use it for canoeing/jetskiing. I keep all my dry gear up there, lets me throw all the wet stuff in the van.

I got and fitted mine today! Arrived 10 mins after I got home from work. Absolutely awesome, much more substantial than I thought it would be. 4 self tappers into holes which are already in the van then 2 bolts and washers, there's a couple of them on ebay at the moment - get one!

My third one also arrived today . Such a great bit of kit. Just about to order another one. They are such fantastic value that if I don't manage to sell any they will get used up by me. tongue
