The Cursed Roof Rack

It was undecided weather or not a roof rack would be a good idea or not so we decided to make one anyway. Roofbars alone from a local shop were quoted at £80 so we went to a local metal recycling yard and picked up some material to make our creation from. We started out building roof bars alone out of 50mm diameter steel pipe, cut and welded into conveniently sized shapes to fit the roof of The Edgewater. Some fine tuning was needed to ensure a snug fit onto the roof. After demonstrating to Chris how to reduce the risks associated with the drinking of tea, the welding of the bars continues in the hope that the roof rack won't dissintegrate in the rougher parts of the desert. The next step was to paint the bars as the steel that we had used was bound to start rusting quickly. Unfortunately the choice of paint was extremely thick and hard to apply. And here we see the finished (almost) roof bars:
