Does anyone have a photo of a fitted boot rack?
I would like to see how they fit please,
Thanks.

Don't have one myself, but from memory, it depends on the manufacturer. Some are actually bolted to the boot lid, while others clip on the edge.

Thanks for that, in the end I bought one from ESM that is universal and clips on the sides of the boot.
For the uninitiated the stud bolts need shortening before fitting.
Anyway its fitted and now I am getting leather straps to hold down the picnic basket.
It should look period, which is what I wanted.
The one you have shown does look good, but I didnt fancy drilling the boot lid.

I have a boot rack and when I tried to fit it I couldn't find enough adjustment to keep it secure enough to hold any light luggage, in the end I stuck it in the loft in the garage and left it there.
How did you fit your rack?
