Well working for radio shack and dumpster diving I'm getting all kinds of cool stuff. Of course ya gotta have roofracks, and such, I just got a free satellite dish for my roofrack but won't attach it until the sequel GBJS II. I'm planning on making mine look a little ecto 1 and a little of my own innovations for functionality on wiring hookups and stuff. My roof rack will probably have 4-6 95lb magnets, and probably put some sort of thin cloth underneath them to keep them from scratching the living shit out of my roof, as well as using a tie down strap through the windows to keep it from sliding around, hope this helps.

Why dont you got the a sporting good store and buy a pair of those ski racks.. the clamp on the sides of the roof.. so you can carry skis or surf boards.. then all you do is mount the roof rack to it.. the clamps are covered in rubber so not to damage anything..

That's what I've been thinking about, but they stand too high from the roof, as well as too wide from the sides of it.. Though if I use a ski rack, I suppose then I would be able to do a full 6' roof rack.. Hm.. I dunno, I was planning on building a down-scale one I dunno. Last night I got this sweet ass ipod thing from the dumpster, I'm going to peel off the ipod stickers, leaving me with an oval-shaped white plastic tube. Some advertising paintings on the sides, couple 12V 40W lights in there and some new caps, and one hell of a cool and original sign on top of the roof rack. I think I am going to look into those ski racks though. They just look.. Too big for the car from what I've seen, besides, are ski racks even made for mustangs? What kinda idiot takes a mustang up into the mountains where there's ice and snow? Surfing I can see but.. SKiiing? You gotta be friggin nuts. These are not cold-weather cars, beleive it.

Okay, can some of you guys give me links or help me look for luggage racks that grab onto mustang roofs? Remember, it only looks like the car has upper supports on the doors, but that's an illusion, that's actually part of the roof that goes up over the windows, they are like convert windows. I'd appreciate some help guys, thanks!
