Roof Bars idea for ES (glass roof)
In case of interest, I managed to take a set of Mont Blanc roof bars with rubbery feet from my old ford focus and simply slacken the feet and slide them further apart along the bar so they would sit snugly onto the metal bit of my 2007 Civic ES roof. Drove it cross country and over motorways and pot-holed roads on a surf trip with two boards strapped to it. It worked fine. I taped up the inside of the door frame to avoid scratches, as the metal foot profile is a bit aggressive against the bodywork. It didn't budge, but don't blame me if you try it and it falls off!
