Too right about the dealers Reg.

I'd not give up on the idea just yet, my last van a bessacarr E745 had a week roof too, but the previous owner like to take chairs up onto the roof to watch sporting events, he had two pices of aluminum chequer plate stuck to the roof, measuring about 2m x 1m each, I'm pretty sure somethign similar but smaller would more than do the job for you.

Incidentally eurajohn, which Sikaflex and cleaner / activator are you using for the roof mounts? I've used mostly 292 in the past.

Recently been 252 with 205 activator, clean and prepare both surfaces then final clean off with Isopropyl alcohol, then activator, I use tile spacers to ensure the correct film thickness.
I did once buy, by mistake some 552 which after realising my mistake read the specs and decided to use it anyway, never gave a problem.

Interesting about 292 I've never tried it but just looking at the spec sheet it does look ideal.

I found the 512 very nice to use, free flowing out of the gun via the standard hole in the tip, and I have had cause to use the remainder twice since then to seal up some leacky white guttering on the conservatory tip just needed a poke with wire to get it flowing again, I used no cleaner (due to the situation and shape) and it has stuck like the proverbial.
