got a Milford cargo barrier of a mate how used to have a cruiser and went to put it in, but there are no threaded holes for the two top arms to bolt into the body. nothing is ever easy is it

i realise that in a GXL, you just take the grab handle off, put the bolt through the cargo barrier arm and replace the grab handle, but how do u do it in the standard truck?

i was trying to get away with not buying thr fitting kit, but looks like i might have to

Hi Bigaz,
The 100GXL's I have seen have had to be drilled and a bolted also. They had a special plate/nut that goes through a large drill hole and the top bracket bolts into this. The grab handle then bolts back on in its original spot. Sorry if this sounds double dutch but if you can get a look at one in a used car yard or car park it will make sense.

Just checked this in my standard 100, and yes, there is a punched hole through which fits a short plate, about 3 inches long, with a threaded bolt hole. There is also a spacer that sits between the steel and the plastic trim which seems to allow the bolt to be tightened without distorting the trim.

cheers for that, i thought that the upper arms were just attached to the bolt holding the grab handle, but obviously this isnt the case.

Pm me your email addy and i will scan the fitting instructions for u.

You definitely DONT use the grab handle bolts or the kiddie seat holes in the floor either.

There are pimples punched above the windows in both positions and thats where it goes and measurements to show where the floor holes go.
The fitting kit is $79 from TJM or similar

Hi bigaz,
I have just finished doing the same thing to an 80 series. I rang Milford in Adelaide and "Annie Petet" emailed me the fitting instructions. From them I worked out what had to be done and rang her again for the kit which she wouldn't send direct to me but gave me the part number to order from the local agent whose address she gave me. Ordered from the local bloke and it was here the next day as Annie promised. Needless to say I was impressed with the service. It took a full afternoon to fit but now that I know what's involved I would be quicker next time.

......and when fitting it, take great care when drilling your holes outward - very easy to hit the outer skin (I haven't done one, but I've seen a pro installer hit the skin ! - the panel repair was hundreds $$$).
