Here is the clamp I used...electrical conduit clamp 1 1/2 inch [img]Cheap but sturdy Quick Fist OEM Roof Rack attachment Pipe-clamp-1[/img]

Here is the clamp after a little Plasti-dip and the quick fist attached with some stainless steel bolts [img]Cheap but sturdy Quick Fist OEM Roof Rack attachment 2012-06-19_13-23-40_352[/img]

The plasti-dip was rushed and didn't bond well enough..I may redo it sometime soon

thanks...the clamps worked great..2 short bolts, 2 washers, and 2 nylon locking nuts and that's it..less than $14 from Lowes Hardware including the plasti-dip but not counting the Quick Fist clamps
