RE: Simple Basic Roof Rack
Not yet. Been crazy busy. I'm hoping to have it finished for the event. Got two jobs to do this week plus try and find time for my trans and a whole bunch of other crap.

One of the mounting brackets for my roof rack is just about finished. I had to modify the design at the last min due to some miscalculations. And the fact that I didn't like the way they looked at first.

All I know is I need to spend more time tig welding steel. These welds don't look as good as I wanted but it's to late now lol. Good thing it's going to be covered up with a textured power coating lol.

P.S. This part is very time consuming. That's why it's taken me a year to update this thread lol.

More progress. This thing is taking way longer than I had thought it would. However it's important that it looks like I bought it when it's all said and done.

RE: Simple Basic Roof Rack
That looks really nice. Wish my junk wasn't broken so I could come check it out. I like how low it sits too, most racks I see sit up too high for my liking, I really like how you did this.

RE: Simple Basic Roof Rack
You're not that far. Hop on your bike and swing by this weekend. It should be finished by then. lol however I said that same shit last weekend.

And yeah I tried to keep it as low as possible. I still may lower it a little too. Once I finish the other 3 mounts I'll see how much room I'm working with. I don't want to load it down and then have it sag and tap on the roof. It's a fine balance because I also need to get under there to clean it. Might be using a stick and a rag lol.

RE: Simple Basic Roof Rack
Something heavy enough to sag that probably shouldn't be on the roof anyway, lol.

The rack turned out nicely, looks like it belongs there. Better than anything you could buy.

Are you going to wait until 2 days before to start the transmission swap? Tongue
