John242i I was thinking the exact same thing. The thing that I can't understand is these racks appear to be mostly decorative. Even the main bars that run parallel with the car seem pretty flimsy compared to the gutter mount Thule type racks that are on my other wagon. And the gutter mount style don't require holes to be drilled in the roof. I don't like anything in the roof, including sunroofs, just something that can leak. I like the rubber grommet idea, it seems like a viable semi long term solution. Man that roof is going to be a lot of buffing and waxing.

Question??? Do the well nuts stay in place or get removed/pushed through? One of the 8 had already been pushed through and is now rolling around on the headliner somewhere.
