Roof Racks (First Gen)
I am playing the idea of getting a roof rack for my 1995 Sl2, but I cannot seems to find what the original one looked like. My brother has a Saturn (Saris) rack on his 1997 Sl2, it doesn't even get close to lining up to my 1995's roof shape, let alone the door profile. Just want to see some pictures of first gen racks (not the permanent wagon ones), or if anybody knows of cheap ones that look factory, I am all ears.
1994 Sl2 5spd: 56,576 (Totaled 1/10/2018)
1995 Sl2 5spd Manual Swap: 150,062
1999 Sl2 4spd: 98,8xx

Re: Roof Racks (First Gen)
Yakima has a rack configuration for the GEN1 S Series. The same one will fit the sedan, wagon and coupe. However, the coupe also requires a stretch kit (8000134) though. You need the following parts new or used for the minimum rack configuration for the sedan and wagon.
To buy them new you're looking at around $370. Everything can be found used and everything but the clips are not car specific. It'll be difficult to find the clips used so resolve to buy them new old stock (while still available) after a quick used parts search.
The following cars use the Q13 clip if you come across complete car specific racks.
Make Model Type Start Year End YearI've bought complete rack systems with extra components and sold off what I didn't need. Many times I've broken even on the buy/sell.
Check out etrailer.com or rackattack.com as Yakima no longer shows them on their site. eTrailer looks like they have new old stock available at the moment and the clips have been discontinued by the manufacture so it does not show in the fit
Thule would likely have a comparable product but I favour the Yakima.
