Modified for D90 - Disco roof rack

I have a regular Discovery roof rack that was modified by the previous owner of my D90 to fit on it. It bolts into the side of the door cage tool bars. But I find it is too high off the top and raises the clearance requirements for my truck. I just don't like it... I bought an arc welder this weekend, on sale at Canadian Tire, and plan to make my own rack... but that is for another forum thread.

I would gladly sell the rack for anything I can get for it, best offer kinda deal or trade. I would give it away, but my wife sees all the bills for my D90 stuff... you get the picture...

It would be close to impossible to ship this. I can take to the UPS depot across the border in Champlain NY for anyone that is interested in the USA. Pickup would be better.

Picture frame last year shows it installed. It has some rust, a few holes, etc... nothing that can't be fixed.

I think what was done is that the front gutter rails where modified or welded so it could sit on the NAS D90's sides roll cage near the front doors on either side.

It's sunny out, so I took some pictures:

It looks like the clamps where just bent or re-welded at an angle. There are also a few hole from rust which can likely be fixed. It was stored for a while by the previous owner. As well it has lights on it, which may not work, no idea, I'm not selling them, but I do not intend to remove them...

As I wrote, I just want to get rid of the rack and will consider all offers for money or trade for something that I can use on my D90.
