just starting taking all the bolts/screws out. under the weather stripping in your doors should be some screw/bolt things going into your car those are what holds the rack down. At least that's for my ZX3 rack from the special edition zx3. ( I forget the name of that edition with the custom rack)

^^He has a wagon not a ZX3 its a little differant. Your talking abuot the Street Edition, thats what my wagon is. It has the black moldings on the bottom like yours does.

The roof rack is held on by all the torx (star looking hole) screws. Theres about 6 down each side. Just take them out then lift the rack off the car. There is strip of rubber under the rack so make sure that comes with the rack. Then put all the screws back into the holes on the roof, just to make sure water doesnt leak into the car.

If you need to make it easier to store the rack once its off, the cross bars will slide off the front of the rack. There is a stop inplace that you unscrew.

Your right the wagon looks a million times better without the rack on it. BTW Kenosha is a pretty place. That is Kenosha WI right?
