Default Complete PIP Roof Rack for New VW beetle - $400

I have for sale a complete PIP vw roof rack. These are very hard to find. Comes with all mounting brackets from PIP. One of the PIP badges may be missing or not. I'll look. It is in excellent condition except for the usual paint peeling and some superficial rust. The wood is looking good as well. Ready for for the roof! Price does not include shipping. I am in Massachusetts.

Below I have included pictures of the one I had on my yellow 99 bug so you can see what it looks like painted to match a car. very nice. The one for sale is the OEM black. The pics of the yellow roof rack are for illustration purposes only.

I cannot ship this to Europe as it will cost $500 to $700 USD. Unless you want to pay that. But I'm pretty sure you don't.

hello, my name is mario, and I'm from Mexico, so I can not buy your rack but I'm building one for my beetle and if you can provide me some pictures of the rack mounting system, you would help me a lot because the rack assembly that I did was based on a more rustic system and I would like to improve it!

thank you very much!!

this is my beetle.

Default attaching the pip roof rack

To attach the roof rack you must pry off the strips of metal at either edge of the roof. Be careful. You will want these back some day. In these now exposed channel is where these mounts will go. There is an outer bracket and an inner pressure plate. Through a threaded knob they oppose each other when the knob is put through a hole in the outer bracket into a bolt welded to the pressure plate. As you turn the knob (with both items in the channel) the two elements spread apart until they expand to push against either side of the channel. Once tight - they are going to be the thing the rack bolts to. There is a hole in the outer bracket which a bolt will go through and attach to the rack itself. In your case if you make something like this you will probably just weld it so it looks cleaner. Below are some pics. I hope my description and picture taking helps.

Default PIP parts

believe it or not - I have an extra set of the outer bracket parts and of the knobs. The pressure plate is a pretty simple piece of metal, slightly bent with a foot attached to it (the foot sits in the channel, coated with rubber tips, and applys the pressure to the channel to hold the feet in place) The pressure plate has a hole drilled in it with a bolt welded to one side for the knob to screw into. it is pretty heavy gauge metal. Maybe 3/16" thick.

Still fs?

And how firm are you on the price. I'm looking at a fully restored one that still has the emblems for the same price you are asking. Would you do $250?

Does yours have the rubber inserts for the rain gutter?

I am pretty firm on the price as it will also be a bit of work to box it up properly. Some parts for the rubber inserts are there - some are not I think I only have a couple of the short sections. I often contemplated cutting the factory inserts as I never liked the look of the rubber that came with the roof rack and the shorter sections were always falling out! Shipping is around $160 to the east coast via UPS.
