Rack Removal

I'm thinking about removing the roof racks from my ZTW, and putting them away for re-installation if I ever need them (haven't so far in 1 1/2 years). I did a Photochop, below, to help me make up my mind that it's worth doing. The plan is to fill the holes with either the existing screws or some others that have smooth rounded heads that will be painted blue to match.

Question: Will I need to remove the headliner for any reason, or can this all be done from above? Any other hassles that I might encounter? I'm counting on finding a good painted surface underneath that I just need to wax.

how it looks now:


how it will look (including some more window tinting):


A visor above the back window will also come later. Sorry, no plans for a drop.

There aren't many stick wagons, but there are a few of us. I thought of removing the wrack, but we use it about twice a year. So it is worth keeping. HRW did his a few years back and it looks good.

You'll have inserts that remain in the roof- what holds the screws in. I removed mine, and then fabricated a Windstar rack to fit into the stock holes. It took some drilling and thinking, but when I don't need it I can remove the rack. It looks better too, and cost much less than Ford's crossbars. For some reason in 05, they decided to make the crossbars something that had to be ordered after the car was sold.

Hang on, I'll find some pics

Close up of the rack base.


Rack with crossbars--- and hey, I do wash it!!



Yeah, it's a stick too, some day I hope to make it an even shorter throw shifter by removing the reverse lockout and moving the cable connection up- if the console will allow.
