Scored a pair of these yesterday. Often hard to find in the US; especially new and made of stainless.

I know exactly what I will do with them and am excited at the challenge.

Ten points to anyone here who knows what they are and have personal experience installing them.

You're gonna use them to mount a solar panel?

Nope, though that might be a good application! They might be a bit overkill for most adventure-sized panels. They should be here tomorrow and I'll snap an image with a rule to show size. I felt pretty lucky to find a new pair, and of stainless, to boot. They came from the UK to California, and I snapped up the last pair he had. You usually find them used and rather bent or mangled, or used on eBay with round arms all rusty and pitted.

Raising brackets for a Westy pop-top?

Yep! I've been looking for a good pair for a long time and stumbled upon this pair, not even listed publicly with his other items.

I'm looking forward to experimenting with them for angles and pitch, then may use them for a pop top I'm planning.

Just bought a Cargo Net for the rear ceiling of the cab. Not due in for a month or two (small shop and demand is high).

Also just got a visor organizer with Molle.

Plan on getting more organization stuff in the future. I'm tired of my cluttered truck on trips :grin:

Does that roof cargo net have a bit of stretch to it? I'm thinking about sewing some up for similar use, both inside and out.

edit: I finally found their Materials and Color info page
