Can post pictures if you wish.
I would like to see pictures, if you please .
As of now the only off-the-shelf Thule rack I have seen that will work on a High-Roof T1N Sprinter is the 420 foot-pack with 421 adapters as pictured by ALV in this thread http://www.sprinter-source.com/forum...ead.php?t=1100 and available from variouis shops in England such as this http://www.car-roofracks.co.uk/van-roof-bars-racks.htm .
I haven't found any domestic source for the Thule 420 w/421 adapters. Would be much easier for me if I could easily modify a Thule rack that I could buy at my local REI about two blocks away.
Thanks .
