Welded up a cage from old bed frame for the frame of the rack

then used an old picnic table as the wood supports. all screwed into the frame from the bottom.

I like everything except that mac sticker. That rack would look so nice if it was chrome like the trim on your car. Good job on the build and congrats on the house!

Honestly, nothing on Macs (although personally I hate them) but it doesn't fit your car man.

The roof rack on the other hand, superb my friend. Maybe put some tie down points?

A chair (two if it fits) a small table and an umbrella. This is the ONLY thing to do now. I will personally see to your demise if this is not completed. lol
