I'm going to make a wood roof basket or rack, but which style should I make? [confused]
Here's what my car looks like:

Style 4: (I'd obviously make it a little smaller and maybe a little shorter)

And also, what color do I go with? The little color like the first one, or the darker color one? (I have a hardwood floor in my trunk that looks more like the dark one, but the lighter one looks good too [:/]) Any help or comments would be appreciated!! I need help making this decision haha

I will just rip my comment from the other one to get you started. ;)

I like style two and its color. Style four would look good with different wood coloration.

OT: Did you ever figure anything out with your passenger side fender, bro?

Yeah, I did actually haha, I got a new fender and I'm getting it painted sometime in the next few weeks. [:D]
But back to the racks, I think the style 2 color would match my interior best, and I've had some friends say they like style 4 and that 1 would look too boring

I'm undecided on which one, but I really love the stain on the second one. Also are you getting that new fender painted separate from the car? It may not match very well if so.

A mix of 2 and 1. Vertical slats like number one but with siderails like number 2. 2 looks out of place with the front and rear rails, would look much better if they were lengthwise of the car.

True... I'm glad you thought of that. Ill probably put it on the car then and have it painted that way. Thanks man.

I'm also digging the idea of a mix between 1 and 2, that might be pretty cool. Still need more opinions and time to think though!
