Installing roof rails

Postby leaster1939 » Fri Oct 21, 2016 6:10 am

I want to add roof rails to my 2009 Vibe GT. I will be searching salvage yards but I am concerned about the difficulty to install them. Anybody have experience with this , let me know. How about water proofing

Can you please post some further away pictures of your Vibe with the Matrix roof rack? I'm considering getting one and would like to get a better idea of how it looks. Thanks in advance!

I've seen the other thread. I was hoping you would have some additional pictures from a little further away...

Good ;)!

I actually saw a 2nd gen Matrix with an OEM roof rack in person the other night!
