Thanks(I think your talking to me...lol)Kudos on the rack!
From the photo, one couldn't tell if it was a professional aftermarket rack or not!
What did you use for the mounting brackets into the factory roof mounts?
Can you take some close up photos of that assembly?
Are you going to leave it unpainted or maybe clear coat or black?
The plan is to leave it plain...its held up really well going on 3+ years now .
The brackets were made out some phenolic material I had shaped to fit the contour of the roof, then I covered them in white vinyl, and connected a 4" pc of 2"x 4" angle to connect the sides to.
Once I had the sides mounted where I wanted, I trimmed the height of each one, and bolted it together.
I then installed the U channel that the bars are fit in and bolted. At the end of each cross bar I cut and tapped in a pc of Azec, so when I cranked down the bolts it wouldn't collapse.
I have to look for a link with pictures
