By using the Rhino Rack Roof Rack recommended mounting positions, the racks are carefully aligned on the roof and the location of the mounting holes are marked. These holes are drilled to a safe depth and all waste metal filings are removed from the surrounding areas. These holes are treated with a specific anti-corrosion paint and a surface using a specially formed self-sealing rivet which prevents water penetration.
