Gutter mount roof rack build.

This may delve into an old post I have to revive as my pace is pretty lethargic these days lol.

But anyway, I made the start, the "stands" and crossbars. For now I'm using a plastic pallet for a roof basket, bolted onto the rails. Its load rated to 4400lbs, and was free, so it works for now.

The upright plates are 1/4", the gutter clamps are 1/8". The tubing is 1x3" box, .125" wall.

I have some 1" round DOM tubing .125" wall leftover from lotus A arms I was making, I may tie the crossbars together with to make a sturdy floor, then bolt another pallet on. Lol. Who knows

I'm almost finished with the rack. Had more time off to work on it than I expected. Just need to find a suitable steel mesh for the floor. I'm really excited how it turned out.
