Hahahaha! but the one thing i just thought of last night after i orderd it was, The mounting adapters. Now does that come with the cross bar? Like that kind that are on a loyale stock?? I hope it does have the cross bar for the front/rear and not just some feet you put on your exsisting mounts:confused: So will see.......

Wow i'm sooo happy! My rack arived tuesday and i put it together and on the car. Here's some pics of it today. This rack is well worth it! The only thing, If your going to mount it to your Gutters you will need a little longer bolt. The kit come's with a 1/4" but you will need a 1/2". Work's really great and it's totaly soild! Here it is.

Thanx, Yeah i'm going to get some lights and do that this spring. I would get Hella or PIAA but have you seen the price:eek: So i might buy these one's the Harbor fright has. They look good and these only like $15-20 bucks i think.

Thank's for the comment:)

Yeah it is really cool thanx. If you want a great stereo go with Pioneer! There only $129.99 and there great! I've got the Pioneer DEH-2800MP. And then i've got two Pioneer 6.5" 260w 4-ways in the rear doors and it sounds great! Good bass and sound. Just a suggestion to help you.:)

I like pioneer but i cant afford a stero that much. I dont have a loyale i have the dl so i dont have cutouts for the rear speakers. I have speakers in the hatch and in the front doors.

Humm i dident know the DL did not have the cut outs in the rear doors. But were you have them is still a pretty good place. And as for Pioneer. I don't know of any other brand that's cheeper? Unless you buy Durabrand from Wal-mart. but that's a really poor radio. I hope you find something.:)

good looking rack. however i'd prolly work on those bolt ends sticking out over the gutters. those WILL hurt when a head comes in contact with them.

Great looking rack on a great looking car. I need to get one of those racks for my sedan. It sucks not having anything on the roof... really handy to have a basket/rack. I think the next thing on the list is a 3" lift and some 15" pugs right? ;)
