    Default Roof rack

    I have access to cnc machining and wanted to make my own roof rack. Just not sure how it is fixed to fitting...fitting just has a rectangular tapered hole as shown in my photo. Has anybody got roof rack and explain how it fits on to fitting or better still a photo of roof rack part?
