Hi all,

Could anyone tell me what the G4 roof rack floor is made of and how thick it is?
I'm guessing 4mm aluminium but not sure if it might be a composite material.

Cheers!

Chris

Thanks Ian!
From pictures of 2006 G4s I've seen, it looks thicker than 2mm but thanks for the confirmation :-)
Perhaps they reduced the thickness for the 2008 Challenge to save a bit of weight?!

Checked the floor on my D3. It's 4mm thick. But looks like two sheets of 1mm ali with something sandwiched between.

Ahh, thanks Pip. Much as I suspected, some kind of composite Ali sandwich to save weight.
Anyone else with any other input would be much appreciated ;-)
