    Has anyone made?

    Now I know we have some very practical guys on the forum so I thought I would ask. I need a rest for foxing that will fit on the passenger window allowing me to have some reach. It needs to be useable on a variety of vehicles. I have tried using the old split pipe lagging over the window but as one of the vehicles is a Suzuki Jeep it does not give a very good shooting position as I am very cramped. I know that you can buy these purpose made but why buy if you can make at a reasonable cost and I am sure someone must have done it on here.

    Cheers,
    John.

    I have't made one personally cos i shoot out the sunroof, a friend has made one though out of a couple of them suckers glasiers use, works really well.
    One of these should be easy to adapt, you buy the bar with suckers seperate from the lamp:

    Arthur Carter sell one for 60 that works with suction cups. Have lamped with a mate who has one and they are good. Have a look at this link. You could probably get something similar made for half the cost but it ain't too expensive anyway.

    Is that a genuine thought?

    Would it have the facility to pivot in and out (closer and further away from the door)

    Id have a think abut one for 30 if you can do it

    hi yes it was genuine i have done abit more research i cannot see why i cant build it it would be able to pivot i have sourced the pads i would have to build it first and test it for safety but would look the same as the link exept the only thing i dont like is having to move the sticky pads to re adjust the height i could make the rail adjustable
