Amazing what you can get in a 911.
Had to use my car to drop off some stands at Excel today. Boot full of stuff too!
Still managed to find room for two humans.

Nice one!

Actually, what can you get in a 911 would be a good thread... a relatively feeble attempt, but my entry;

That looks a right old faff getting that in there and loads of risk of damage to the interior.

Agreed, that looks a far neater solution, needs must on that particular occasion as it was the only way of getting home from the indie! I'd worry about the suckers marking a painted roof though.

Anyone else got any pics of surprising things in 911s... grand pianos, llamas etc?

That's brave putting a bike frame in! Surprised
I was paranoid about a couple of metal rods, somewhere in the middle of the boxes, coming out under cornering.
It turned out that a boat would have been more suitable transport yesterday.

I may post another entry into the 'will it fit' thread as we move house next week and my other half has decided to take the youngest to the in laws.
Now where will the second cat box fit....

Nope. Not a mark. They come with caps to keep them clean when not in use and the suggest you wash them before applying. Plus I have the glass sunroof so they only mount on glass on my car.

But two mates use them as well on their. F-type R and Mustang 5.0 and they do go directly on the paint with no issue at all. Brilliant product.
