There is 8 bolts which fasten the luggage rack to the trunk area (no trunk) of the Vette. Unfortunately, not all bolts were holding anything. 3 of the 8 bolts were holding the whole rack. The other bolts were actually wood screws kept in place with silicone. No rubber gaskets were use and it was just bare metal directly on the fibreglass. Not a good move. Metal washers which were too big were used.

A heavy suitcase or two tied down to this rack while you cruised down the highway would seem nice until you hit a good bump at 80 or 100 mph and your rack and luggage went flying off the car.
