to tell you why I'm asking, I have a whole collection of used Thule roof
rack parts laying around (I wanted to be able to carry bikes on my car,
but didn't feel like paying the exorbitant prices to buy this stuff new,
so I bought a couple racks on Craigslist, eBay, etc. to get all the
parts I needed, and then sold the leftovers that I didn't need.) I've
been going through them and cleaning/fixing everything. Whenever I've
come across a part that's broken or missing, I've been able to get on
Thule's web site and order it for cheap. UNTIL...
just picked up a used "fit kit" for my mom's car (mom and dad said they
wanted one too when I offered them the leftovers.) Used off Craigslist
of course, I'm not spending $70 if I don't have to. Anyway there's one
little plastic clip that they're going to need that apparently got lost,
and while Thule is good about replacement parts for racks and
accessories, apparently if you lose a piece of a fit kit you're boned
and have to buy a whole new one. I have another clip to copy and it
looks pretty trivial to make one, if I were able to find some sheets of
appropriately sized ABS (I believe that's what it is made of) glued
together with some sort of appropriate adhesive (ABS pipe cement?) But
I don't know where to find same (although I bet I could order it from
Would styrene be strong enough? I know I could get that at a hobby shop
and it's easy enough to work with...
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
