How thick is the sheet metal panel used on the roof of my 1999 Toyota Camry?
I am installing a roof rack onto my car! I will be drilling eight holes and
installing a plus nut into each hole (something like this
However, each plus nut is designed to accommodate a specific 'hole size'
and sheet metal thickness (the call this "Grip Strength"). Does anyone know
the "Grip Strength" or metal thickness of the metal panels on the roof of a
1999 Toyota Camry?
Interesting question. I would be inclined to find a spot on the edge of one of the fenders on this vehicle .....say at one of the wheel wells. Using a digital caliper...measure the thickness at that spot...and drill a hole...insert one of those plus nuts to see how strong it appears to be. What do you think?
