Good way of mounting roof rack???

so i mounted the roof rack i bought off craigslist for $20
i decided to mount the rack underneath the factory cross bars and it ended up working out really well, maybe this will help someone else out bc it puts the rack's cross bars directly on top of the factory slide rails (first pic)

i also have a roof spoiler from some small truck that lost it illegally wheeling on my property (pics 2-3).
WHat do you guys think? should i paint her black and mount it up???

I think the rack looks good but, not digging the roof visor. I think at the very least you should cut the peices that extend above the rack.

Nice rack bro but not digging the visor at ALL. IMO just leave it off, unless you can cut enough off to make it look good.
