bob i never was very good at trigonometry but i feel that if you put another roof rail in the sides will be all awry .actually they don't look that tight fitting anyway . of course if it were there to try i would definitely try it out

My guess is that the bottom of the center hoop connects to the lower part of the back one and just angles forwards.

very possible , in fact the Bond G rails i have been told operate in the same way but the opposite . the main upright is complete and the rear one branches off it . on the car in question you cannot see the bottom of the hoop so i guess you are correct.

if your not into roof rails you will have long since given up on this topic  ;D

hello !! bob ? is ANYONE still there ?? oh crikey talking to myself again

I do hope Wayne doesnt mind us analyzing his car in this way, its just that his is the only one surviving that has a hood, jeans does although Andy did show me once a shriveled pile of old pvc in the shed and identified it as the hood remains! I think it was too far gone to learn much from. I was invited over to look at Waynes car a few weeks ago and it is a great little car, in full working order too.

What you see  here is the visual basis for a successful argument for keeping the hood of a micro car down. ;)
