i need to pick up some sheets of plywood for a little job at home and i have sold my big trailer, so i decided that because the 4 or 5 4mm sheets of ply wont weigh much so why not use a a roof rack?

The lack of a gutter might seem a problem.....not for a man with a drill and some ideas it's not. so i got some 4 X 2 timber and shaped some runners and fitted some steel cross members.....…
