Put my Yakima on with the new clips. Solid and looks good. Loud as hell without the fairing which should arrive next week,

I think that hacking off those few inches of overhang has made the car look that much more slick You could get down to the "science" about how it saves on weight (feels a touch lighter now) and wind resistance for mpg, but I just did it because now it looks better IMO

I applaud your ingenuity Wilson, but I do not like the look...at all. It now seems too narrow.

No worries! To each his own But in real life, it looks and flows so much better with the lines/curves of the car. Felt like I had a two big spoilers on top the car lol didn't need all that overhang anyways.

Here is a link to an excellent write-up that wilsonfocus86 did for his Thule set-up:

I'll also link in the first post.

Here is my Yakima Roof Rack on my 2012. They are the Q towers. Q5 clips up front and Q83 clips in back. But unlike most I have the 48" bars on mine so that there is 0 overhang. the bars just fit and I love it. I mostly use it for my 29er bike. 29er is one of the largest MT bikes you can get adn it fits perfectly fine on the rack.

Assessories:
2 Copperheads
Older Gen Powderhound
Fairing

*Before fairing and powderhound








*hatch clearance for 29er bike


*sunroof clearance


Here it is with Fairing and Powderhound

Dont mind the UGLY Woofound sticker, it is the company I work for and I have redesigned the logo(see below), I just havn't changed the decal yet.


Anyways back to the roof


For better MPG I lower the powderhound when im not using it for my skateboards


And for us nerds out there, some Adventure Time love. Also removing the "Hellastock" sticker. Its not as funny as i thought it would be.


There is some slight Fade on the Q towers, but I have had the rack on here for a little more than a year and a half with no maintenance to the rack. Sorry the car is filthy as f*@k. It rained all weekend here in Baltimore and havn't been able to wash her yet
