Carrying my Skis/Snowboard

Whilst looking for a bike rack and reading the mountain bike thread, I came across this. Think it was recommended for a GT owner in that part of the forum, maybe it would work for the GTV?

It's magnetic with a film that should protect the paintwork. Whilst the skis are locked in place the magentic parts are not removable.

Re: Carrying my Skis/Snowboard

i had a magnetic rack on a hire car while skiing this year and it scratched the **** out of the roof - i wouldn't risk it even with a protective film.

Re: Carrying my Skis/Snowboard

If the protection between the mount and the car is adequate, the only thing that can scratch the paint is dirt. Probably best, if you're going to use one of these, to make sure the paint is scrupulously clean and protected with a coat of hard wax (like Meguiars for example) before you mount it.

I was skiing in Italy in March and saw several GT's as well as other Alfas with these stuck on the roof.
