I can start to sell your roof rack over here in Europe. People mail me every week and ask where to buy them. The Danny stuff is hot

Mohawk..... how about a knock down kit? Might be easier to ship.....just need someone with a split roof to weld it together.
Sold one to a bay owner that fits just fine.

A buddy of mine got one of your ghia racks at Daytona and then had it powdercoated in "almost chrome" or whatever its called. It looks sweet.

Here's the ghia. I think it cost him $100-125 to get it powdercoated.

Cool, thanks for the pic.
Even with the price of powdercoating, it's still a good deal.

Hey Tan, I like it, but where it looks like the rack attaches at the top is where the hold down straps go when the top is down.

Where does it attach at the bottom?

Deah Jawja Boodawg fayun,

Rack ideas came off of this Thing, the two tabs are above the taillight for the top mount.

The bottom of the rack goes in the square openings in the bumper and attaches.

Hopefully 73 & 74 Things have the same bumper.

In case of engine fire, the rack doubles as a grill for the tailgate parties.
