Roof rails

I see there are plastic strips on the roof. Has anyone ever removed them? I see they can be removable. Are they for a roof rack rails? I really want to make (weld) my own roof cross members. Real easy to make but I do not want to rip those strips out just yet if they canít be replaced. $300 for cross bars is crazy

It does look removable. I'm curious as well since I was thinking of buying some more robust cross-bar and maybe drilling a hole on top to secure it to the frame.

I removed one of those rail covers. Nothings there no bolt studs no nothing. Iím confused why they are there but they snap back in not problem. So really if I wanted to make my own roof rail Iíd have to weld in a mount to the roof then weld together the rails= pain in the ass.

$300 isnít that much. U donít want some piece of junk to fly off when your youíre driving down the highway.

I have them on my C-HR and I want to remove them. They give you the tools to take them off, but the manual with all the step-by-step pictures on how to remove them are very confusing.
