    I wanted a Rack but didnt want to spend $200 on one, So I went and got some steel (cost $45)Some primer and Paint(cost $5) then went to work. 4 hours later here is what I got.

    nice, real nice. i to can't spend the money on a back rack. lowest i've seen them for is 250.
  4. Nice..

    I've got to get going on one. Had the steel sitting in the shop for 2 weeks now. $88 for enough steel to build 2 and much heavier built than the BackRacks

    I lined the upright bars with my slideing window and the flat stock with my windoe so I wouldnt loose any visibility. Worked good. Looking in the mirror or out the window you can hardly tell its there.
