Default luggage rack

Found a great deal on a Mustang seat for my 03 and my current rack wouldn't fit any longer, so I decided to fab one up. Used some 3/8" round bar and some scrap plate to make the mounts.





Looked in to having it chrome plated and changed my mind real quick. Have some powder coating on order that should be real close to the correct color. Will post some more shots when I get it coated & mounted. I think it's going to work out nicely

I think you could make a lot of money off them from other guys wanting one

Powder coating should be here Friday. I hope USPS does better on this package than the last. Should have time to get it done this weekend and take some pics.

The fender is stock. The passenger seat has brackets that attach to the same point as the new rack under the struts. It won't fit with the Mustang seat either. I will have to buy one from them or go back to stock for a passenger.

That looks great! Job well done.

I know what you mean on the chrome, man has that gotten expensive!
A buddy of mine asked me just last night how much it would cost to have his pickup wheels chromed...which is about $300 more than new ones would cost.

I was quoted $450-$500 for chrome. Needless to say, that was the end of that idea!
