Low cost NAS 110 roof rack mod - inspired by Wolf Fab

Well, been really wanting a different roof basket/rack so my kids and I could more easily walk around up there and when at the beach to be able to sit up there at night, etc. Was looking through all the posts I could find on the forum for ideas and was inspired by Jonathan at Wolf Fabrication in terms of some of the materials he was using. I found similar or same (impressive quality) mesh flooring material, connected 3 together, they were the perfect size for the roof, and used a bunch of 175lb zip ties to attach them _very_ securely to the roof basket. It flexes very modestly if you put all your weight in a small spot on the flooring between the bars, but this is easily avoided, and don't think there are much consequences to doing it anyway. I generally only load up coolers, beach chairs, light gear up top so there are sufficient mounting points for straps etc. Anyway, wanted to share just in case other NAS 110 owners could benefit. Flooring, $75 (FarmTek), zip ties $25 (Amazon). Few pics attached. btw, just got the truck back from ECR which did a bunch of work on it (upgrades, maintenance, etc.) - they're awesome!
