custom roof platform/rack question

I remember there was guy on D90 who made custom gutter mount clamps for roofracks. Does anyone know this fella?
looking to possibly build a flat diamond plate platform , no rails, eye hook hardware for lashing, and very low profile on the D90. Also if using flat aluminum or steel plate, what thickness would you guys go with, on a 3'X5' platform, bolted to
8 gutter clamps? no flex and weight is the issue here. Any ideas welcome, and thanks!

I made these gutter holders--they work great for me and I just used spare steel. I used flat bar stock for the vertical support and welded a spacer/bushing on it. I then welded a bolt stud onto some angle iron that grips under the gutter. Pretty bombproof and able to make all 6 in a couple hours. Not the prettiest, but if time is not of a concern (or money), then a variation on this theme could do you proper...
