Default 740T Mud Flaps/Roof Rack ideas?

Hey Guys,

Still in the process of modding my 89 740T. I recently picked up a 16T Turbo, manifold, 3 inch downpipe and fuel injectors to add some HP to the bad boy.

In the meantime, I'm looking for a roof rack and mudflaps for the car. Any ideas? Roof racks that attach to the rain gutter are becoming increasingly hard to come by

My 1990 wagon came with a set of Yakima racks, with the option for loading a canoe,it so happens that we have one. Take them off and you have no wind drag. Brought lots of stuff home from the box stores.

These are the cheapest I could find, and so far it’s been great! I’ve had like three pallets on there at a time ratchet strapped down without a problem. My biggest issue so far is the “hoops” on the end of the bars. It looks like a good strap point, but start deforming as soon as a small amount of pressure is applied.

I ended up throwing this up on top just a couple weeks ago. It’s a pretty solid unit. I am noticing some rusting coming through already, so I would maybe throw a coat of clear coat on it before installation. The biggest downside to this basket was the clamps that hold it to the bars. I ended up getting them to work when it was all said and done, and none of the clamps contact the roof (challenging to do with the clamps provided). I’ve had a leaf blower, chainsaw, and two gas tanks up top without any problems, so for the price you can’t beat it. It’s very quiet also.

Hope this helps

PM Stiggy Pop, he just picked up a set of four what appear to be basically new OEM mud flaps.

I just bought a Thule for mine. I got the square bar type for a more vintage look.

Skandix has/had OEM mudflaps. Real nice, and easy install..... unless you're trying to look like you own a Subaru.
