    Skyline Roof thermal cover

    Hi all, I've just seen that Skyline roofs are selling their own thermal wraps to fit their pop tops. Has anyone got one or could recommend one to fit an Aurora roof. Cheers

    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.

    skyline roof clips

    We have the slightly earlier Skyline roof which is held down - sort of! - by two straps at the front. This is not satisfactory as it is difficult to tighten properly and tends to lift at speed. It needs some sort of toggle catch arrangement rather like the roof of a 2CV. Does anyone know...
