I'd be interested in seeing a pic of said rack.

Was the $6 the cost of duct tape to hold it together?

I did a $6 roof rack once - 2 2x4's with 4 3" deck screws up from inside the roof. It even fixed the drooping headliner too.

That just proves my theory, you can't take pictures through a welding helmet.
