    Thank you to everybody for your suggestions, I’ve plenty to experiment with. So far I have discovered that our bar doesn’t fit behind the seats, on the Hunter. I’m not too happy with it jammed beside the passenger either.

    I’ll play around fitting it inside the boot hinge, at least it would seem to be readily accessible for a downpour there, especially if the boot is packed with M’Ladies weekend accessories!

    It seems that few respondents use the bar as intended, but I always made sure it is fitted over the winter, with the hood up and under cover just to keep the hood stretched into shape.

    Let’s hope we don’t need it this summer, but that we do get some Marlin motoring miles on the clock.

    Thanks again, Colin B

    I fit my bar for the winter and leave it there. In summer, the roof only goes up for security when I park in a public place or when caught by a heavy rain shower while driving. You don’t need the bar in just to get home. The hood flaps a bit but it stays dry inside.

    ive never used the hood tonneau bag because it’s unwieldy.

    I don’t need to get out of the car to put the up roof in rain. Pull over, reach over shoulder and pull up, clip the rail to screen frame and raise the windows.
