Incredibly rare G4 ROOF RACK DEFLECTOR mini-production !!!

Hey G4 Gang and LR genuine accessories "Expedition" or "G4 Challenge" roofrack owners.

I am proud to have arranged the (potential) mini-production of the Řber rare roof rack deflector for the genuine Land Rover Accessories L322 roofrack ( roof racks were produced by Safety Devices BTW).

These deflectors were made by LR Special Vehicles for the G4 challenge Range Rovers in 2003, therefore were never sold to the public. They do seriously limit noise inside the cabin and in theory fuel consumption/mileage

As a matter of fact, only about 40 were made, and most of them were destroyed when LR had the Range Rover come back from Australia and took all their gear off in order to resale the vehicle to the public as regular used L322s (bar the obvious Tangiers orange paintjob!)

This can be usefull for G4 challenge L322 owners, but on a wider scale to any L322 owner who owns an official Land Rover roof rack, a.k.a. the Expedition roof rack or the G4 challenge roof rack.

Please Read carefully

I am not directly selling, just arranging the production once there are at least 5 deposit taken on the 5 units (I ordered one already of course)


I have been looking for this deflector for years in the USA, Europe and event down under, with no luck.

I have recently found a owner that is kind enough to me use his Genuine unit to reproduce one for me - however the glass fiber company I choose will only produce if they get 5 units in order to recoup labor and moulds.

Parts will be exactly like the original one, down the the rubber strip.

Price will be confirmed this week but the one quoted is (I reckon) attractive - I will post it here when possible, or PM me if in a rush. The producer is a renown, one-off automobiles, specialist.

The final product will be ready to install.

The 4 units can even be sent to the UK in one go for only ú10 a pop if sent in one single go. Anywhere else in the World, please ask but only if seriously interested.

This is the part that will be used for the mould, 100% genuine.





The said part:

Hey gang.

Just a few more infos :

The parts will be produce in FRANCE by the man who built this (see links belos) amongst other wild things (some parts are made of glass fibers as a matter of fact) :

http://www.ebaymotorsblog.com/harley...classic-chevy/

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...TO03/304170037

http://www.intersectionmagazine.fr/5...r-lupo-racing/


Wait! Is this the Grand Nationa Roadster Show 2014's America's Most Beautifull Motorcycle winner. Yes sir.

He is kind enough to produce them for me even though it makes little business sense, as we are talking about a micro-serie.

I am not a manufacturer of any kind, I am only offering the part to roofrack owners, as THEY know how great this would be. I wish someone would have done this before!

Parts can be sent worldwide at cost, not a dime over. I may be able to bring a few to London, L.A. or Las Vegas, if several owners are in these areas.

The part is made of fiber glass, based on a genuine part. Rubber strip included.

LR did never offer this to the market. These were made by LRSV for the aftermarket rack produced by SD, before LR changed his partnership a couple of years later, this may explain why it was not produced.

Price : it all depends on the total amount produced as the big expense is in making the mould :

They will be as low as 90 euros/122 USD/73ú if there are more than 10 ordered.

I am planning on 5 or less, so more like 120E/160$/98ú

Not cheap, but cheaper than what LR or Thule and similar would charge anyway.

Parts will not be painted. A spray can of LR Tangiers Orange is about 10/15 USD at the US dealer (ref : LR005716) and would cover the whole unit if you primer it in red/orange.

UK lads, here's for you :

Recent multiple interested contacts may lead to production, but we need at least another 3/4 people willing to order one to go to production (and to get mine off the rangie now that it has been refitted under the roof rack, itselft under the roof rack board - that's a few hours'worth of labour) l=Oo\________/oO=l l:Ool╬×╬×╬×╬×╬×╬×╬×loO:l

Just a thought - I used to work in the fibreglass industry (mainly marine) and still have contacts of good GRP laminators. If you cannot get your guy to produce the deflector I'm sure I could arrange something - would be a lot easier if I had an actual deflector to produce a mould from.

Not trying to step on anyone's toes but thought I could offer a alternative if you reach a dead end.

Thanks Chawks,

There is no dead end, just that I offered to reproduce it BEFORE getting it painted and fitted on my Rangie, then having a roof floor fitted on top of the roof rack.

Now producing a batch of thoses means getting it all out, making a mould then repainting my own deflector - if it survives the moulding process, then refit the lot again at the shop (2 hours away from me).

I will still gladly help all the lads willing to get one but let us make it worth the trouble really Thumbs Up

If only everyone had replied a few months agao... Whistle l=Oo\________/oO=l l:Ool╬×╬×╬×╬×╬×╬×╬×loO:l

verydisco,

Sorry late to the party but only just re-came across this thread - I'd be interested in one if you do a batch (vehicle is Stornoway grey).

Thanks Ed
