    il have to venture into this task when i get a garage to work in again.
    how come no1 ever makes a full size rack?
    anyone have the measurements of the roof by chance off the top of their head?
    I don't have any real great pics right now but this is mine I built it out of conduit and 1/8 metal all the inside supports are welded and the out sides are bolted. Made the light bar too. I also welded it to gutter mounts. I forget who I bought them from they were relitivly cheap

    You weld to/on the conduit? Was it galvanized? If so you're damn brave.

    Did you weld onto the conduit? Was it galvanized? If so you're brave haha. I still can't figure out what I want to make my rack out of yet. Thinking I'd rather do the welding route for the strength.
