Nice! Do you have a link where you got the mcmaster brackets and hardware? I might steal part of your idea for something I'd like to make.
i think this cost me like 40 bucks tops because i had to buy the 58" Thule loadbars.how much did the set coat you ??
bringing this thread back... what type of brackets and such did you use for the u track ??
I used the #11 brackets on this page:
McMaster-Carr i used the 3 1/2 inch tall ones
i thought i remember getting stainless but i guess not, i spray painted them black and they havn't rusted at all. Ill get some upclose pics of the actual way it mounts.
we rocked it like this up to VT this past weekend, it was sweet being able to lock up gear in the bed and also kept all our bags and boots from getting soaked in the monsoon on the drive home.
