Cars these days don't include the cross bars to go with your roof rack. The factory bars can cost upwards of $350 a set.
My mission was to make cross bars from readily available parts you can find at any hardware store.
The design is simple and easily removable.
Step 1: Gathering The Parts
After deciding on a general design in my head, i headed to the hardware store's plumbing section to see what i could find.
What i ended up with was;
1 - 10' 3/8"x16 threaded rod
2 - 5' 1/2" EMT conduit
2 - 5' 3/4" NSF poly black water line
4 - 3/8" hex nuts
4 - 1" galvanizes Clevis Hangers
this all comes to about $22
