Keeping with the theme of using what ya got and cleaning out my garage as I build, the rack is done. Less than 300$ and 100# weight, it is done enough for an occasional SUP board.or canoe. Had to buy 2, 1 5/8 uni sticks, the rubber feet, M8 bolts, and Raptor 2 part truck bed liner. The rest of the 7/8 strut, L brackets, uni nuts,3/8 bolts, etc was from the garage. Solar Panel is Nupower 210 watt, only putting out 9 because of rain today-LOL. Side rail will have 3/8 eye bolts for the awning from the Element to clip on.
