Re: Upright bar for Toyota roof bars

Are they the wide aero bars? I have just got a toyota and only Thule wide aero bars fitted. I bought from here:

They have a bar that slots in the aero bars but on looking on their websiet it says that it is currently out of stock. Mine only arrived two weeks ago.

Re: Lomo spray decks

I have one of their cheap decks too. It's good - It gets a real hammering in the pool playing polo and it is lasting really well.
