Feet that hold NAS LE Basket

Does anyone still make/sell the Feet that hold the NAS basket above the doors/sunroof. I had to remove my basket while we finished building our house and the feet bolts were seized. We got most free, just wondering if there's a better setup. I saw the ones on ECR, but it appears they don' make or sell them anymore.

Refit with antiseize.

I plan to do that when I re-install. I was able to re-tap the holes where I had to drill. What a pain though. I bet I have at least 12 hours into messing with these feet. I went with extractor route until I broke about three of them off. Then I did a search here and found the consensus is an extractor won't work on a seized bolt. Wondered if there's anything better. Not much of an issue as I don't plan on removing it again.

Terrible design insofar as it is an aluminium housing and steel bolts. Once refitted with antiseize, you should not have further issues.
