Extension_rack

Attached with L brackets to the side. I recently updated this rack to accomodate a downhaul crank...take a look at this post. The rack is attached to the van using "Wafer self drilling screws" as is just about everything else I've added. The screws were Roger Jackson's suggestion (thank you Roger.) Spennie the Wind Junkie (who has done amazing work on his own van) notes this about wafer screws: "They're great, but if you have a high-stress application, use regular sheet metal screws and drill a smaller pilot hole.  For a #8 screw, like those wafer heads, use a 3/32" bit, instead of the self-drill's 1/8", for extra bite."
