Defender Rack Installed!!!

well even though its still 90+ outside i got bored and decided to mount my roof rack... i can honestly say it was a lil nerv racking drilling 12 1/2 holes on the roof lol... but with a lot of measuring and starting with smaller bits i got it done... well.... my battery ran out so i still have 1 bracket left to do... but here is a sneak peak on how its gonna look...

i still need to install 4 more lights up front and 2 in the rear. and also a mount for my highlift on one side and my axe and shovel on the other... it think it looks really good but would love to hear your guys opinion on it...

Aviation Fuel tank sealant, Aircraft Spruce and Speciaties will have it, you want the flexible(rubber type), It'll stay flexible and seal forever.

Fuel Tank Sealants Fuel Systems from Aircraft Spruce

I'd go with the stuff on top or your gonnna waste what you dont use.

I'd put it around the rack bolts to to be sure there are no leaks, We use it everywhere on aircraft.
