Wagon Roof Rails Removal ??
Just saw a wagon with the roof rails off (maybe never had them, don't know). I really like the look especially since I am planning on going the Sport suspension route and 18" staggered wheels in the spring.
has anyone removed the roof rails ?? How much of a PITA is it and can it be done so that the car is restored or are there large water seeking holes left in roof ?
yes holes, if I remember correctly
Seems like the headliner had to be removed to get to them but I just can't remember Mine was a 99
you will either have to epoxy the holes, put plugs into the holes and seal them, or weld them shut, I don't think the rails look bad at all and do not detract from the looks of the car. But without those rails there is a large expanse of flat (slightly arched metal that can be dented easily.
I never removed mine but I seem to remember looking at how they were attached because there was a problem with mine but I wound up selling the wagon after a few months and never looked at it again.
