    Skyline Aurora & T6 Tailgate Bike Rack

    Hi all, Does anyone else have a Skyline Aurora and VW tailgate bike rack combo? If so, does your bike rack hit the Skyline roof when it's popped up, preventing the tailgate to fully open? We've had a bit of a mare with ours plus two broken rear lights.

    Can you change the struts on LWB pop top

    It takes both my husband and I too pull down our pop top. We've tried pulleys as we saw in a previous forum but the roof didn't even budge. Is there a specific strut strength that must be used or are there options? Had anyone else had a similar problem?
