Yeah I would have made the Farring to match the vehicle. but to really do that I would need a heat gun, and I really don't have access to that, and it would not fit in the i might make a longer one and bend my brackets but we will see

I dont think that the roofrack being straight and the roof being curved is that visible when looking at it in real life...when you were explaining it the other day it took me a while to see looks a lot more visible in the pictures though....anyways its looking I am sure you've heard me say before!!

I like that rack, if I were you I'd get two more crossbars to support the rack then you can put more weight on it.
