Anyone have any recommendations on gutter mounts for a diy safari rack?

Looking to start blueprinting some designs so a welder friend of mine can put it together.

1980 DL hatch

Yeah, here are some pix of what soobme did on my safari rack. It worked perfectly for gutter mounts:

Might be hard to tell, but all he did was weld a bolt to a piece of angle iron, and then welded a chunk of square tube to the rack. You slide the bolt through, and tighten it, the angle iron then grabs and tightens to the gutter. Works great, and very very very secure.
