Tying Loads to Top Of Cars without Racks

I think I had developed the best method for securing loads to car roofs that do not have a rack. 
It can be used with or without bungee cords or ratchet straps.

If someone has a method they suggest I'd like to hear it.

If you have such a good method, please share it as an instructable.

The method had already been posted as an instructable when I posted the question. Do you have a favorite technique? Does the problem interest you? Thanks
So far, not a problem for me... I can fit a small family of gypsy's in the trunk of my car... I agree with Kiteman on the streamlined roof box (and also, how do you minimize damaging the paint etc without a rack?)

I did post an instructable on the topic.But the searches do not show it
A roof box is nice to have. I was taking a minimalist approach for occasional use
You can find the YouTube description of that approach by searching YouTube by this phrase.
Tie Large Loads
I do my best to keep luggage inside the car, to maintain aerodynamic efficiency. If I'm forced to put things on the roof, I use a streamlined roof box.
