    I need to fit a roofrack to hold skis / snowboards.
    I'm short on cash at the min but I spotted a Yakima ski rack at the local Salvation Army for $8, it's exactly what I need, BUT, how do I attach it? Sure, there's gutters on the blazers cab roof, but how does everyone attach the other half of a roofrack to the removable top? drill it and screw it or what?
    HELP...........

    Exactly, you drill it screw it and seal it. Can't you just put both on the cab? I've seen them done like that before.

    You can buy rain gutter type mounts that bolt into the fiberglass top for the rear and use the gutters on your cab for the front clamp. I had a removable boat rack attached that way it worked up well. I bought the mounts at a RV dealer. I think they only cost around 12 bucks. Anything that mounts to a rain gutter will work on them.
