Ju9st stumbled on this thread, forgot all about it. I initially did not like the turkey bastor (GM OEM) luggage rack. Held on to it for three years, never mounted it. Theh bought the Norm's light bar and at first did not know if I would put it on my car. I am a dick about drilling into cars. Destroy is my normal reaction about it. So I looked at the light bar setting on the car, on off on off on off, maybe for a week while it was in the shop. The European windrestrictor came and i loved it instantly and it was going on the car. I hated the holes for the orginal fly swatter and this filled them. Done deal. Decided to put the light bar on with the WR and thought it looked fantastic together. And for some reason decided to put the luggae rack on and look at it. Totally changes the car. Makes it look far more exotic. I looked at it for a week, saying yes, no yes no. The upholstery guy put it on face book and asked a bunch of auto body, custom car guys what they thought. The final talley was 239 to 12 for it going on.
Still another day, and then I drilled the first hole, and turned it over to the body guy. Came back a few hours later and fell in love. It was a huge hit at the National, and I have been asked at every car show about it and the light bar. I have an RK wing. It ties the whole rear end of the car together.
So none of it will be for sale, sorry for the long story. I am using the toneau and will keep the original fly swatter.
One of these days I am going to take pictures of my car and post them. I just never do, but I need to.
Personally I would never put the chrome one on. It just does not go with the lines of the car, but if you need it to use the car, that certainly justifies it.
