Roger that ! I was too lazy to try fitting the cradles that we have on our traverse because I didn't want to take them off the traverse but I'm pretty sure they would work as well. And I'm not going to try and load our 12' kayak on there; it might be longer than the Bolt. You can see the Traverse with the cradles up on top in the thumbnails. It's a real SUV and the Bolt is a wanna be small SUV.Pretty sweet. Now just remember not to pull into the garage.
Pretty sweet. Now just remember not to pull into the garage.
This wasn't my idea. I followed a FB post from user William Anzueto to modify a set of Cadillac XT5 crossbars (GM p/n 84121220) to fit my Bolt.
After removing the post from the bar on one side (2 bolts), I cut ~85mm off from one side only (the original post stated ~40-45mm from each side). I then slid the bar back into the post and marked up the positions of the new holes with a Sharpie. I re-drilled the bar with 2 x ~5mm holes but didn't have the appropriate anchor rivets for the bolts, so I used nylon locking stainless nuts (this part was the hardest... in retrospect I should have glued them to the inside of the bar then thread the bolts in).

Thanks !! did the same thing and looks great > i have an LT so had to install the roof rails also .
Big job for sure . had to drill eight holes in the roof and drop the head liner .
Did you cut both sides? I just cut one side and used a self tapper screw on the other side.I went with drilling a pilot hole into the cut bar and then screwing in a lag screw. I think it was a quarter inch. You can see the bolt(s) on either side if you are looking for them, but don't really call attention to themselves on their own.
