Well he got the rails off. The bottom rail came easily. He used a guitar string and sawed through. The other one was an absolute pig! The cycle rack had been put on by the dealers and they out the top rail in a channel that runs across the back doors. This meant that the outer, metal edge of the rail was hard up against the curve of the channel so no chance of getting a guitar string behind it. He got a putty knife 😦🙏 and used that. Finally it came off. There are a couple of small scrapes but not too bad.
Then we got lucky. The next day, we went to get a tow bar fitted, talking on the way how we would get the Sikaflx off the door. Whilst at the towbar fitters the guy said they would take it off for us. They used a tool, a sort of rotary polisher thing. Removed every trace no problem.
I'm on the road again
Going places I have never been
Going places I may never see again
Just can't wait to be on the road again
