I like it. I have a bunch of the luggage carriers I have trouble selling. Im going to build one with a Ford running board for the shelf. Ill try it at the next swap meet to see how they do.

The only problem I see with using a running boards is the luggage rack may not go all the way across the whole running board. I know the one I have is only about half a running board in length. I can stretch it out to reach most of the board, but that's at it's limit and it doesn't really hold anything.

Picked up one of these today at the annual auto flea market we have here in Mansfield every year, this thread must have been on my mind. I'm way too anal about clamping anything on to the painted surfaces of my T, so up on the wall she goes!...the wife looked at me funny when i bought it, looks like it will have to mounted in the man cave.

John,
If you don't want to mark your paint,just cut some 1/4" strips of rubber & put them at connecting points of the rack.
Gary,
How about using a T running board,instead of a wooden one ?
Scott

Two great ideas Scott. I already used roofing ice shield around the perimeters of the floorboards to reduce the annoying vibration noise, it has a sticky side that once attached is very durable. Also used it on the clamp on style side mirrors. But i really love your idea of using a real running board opposed to just wood,very cool idea.

Scott, I dunno. Just saw it on Craigs list and thought it was pretty neat. Now I have to decide if I want to use my rack on the hack or make a shelf for myself. Getting kinda goofy. Better get off my seat and get something to eat.
