I had a phone call last week from a former Solstice owner. He has a GM rack for sale, new still in the box. PM me and I will give you his contact info. It is chrome and I don't know what he is asking. We live on Vancouver Island.
Yes that is highly suspicious. If someone won't take PayPal and doesn't have an established track record of customer service, I wouldn't give them a credit card even. But a bank account? No, that is a fraud attempt imo.The person you recommended me is trying to rob me my identity. There are no pictures of the item. He does not accept Paypal or any other safe electronic options. He does not want to use the USPS COD process. All He wants is my bank account, telephone and address. Who are you??? Are You the person trying to rob my identity.
I thought maybe the rack was the same silver paint that the wheels and windshield surround are painted. Is this not the case?They came in gloss black and gloss silver (chrome plated plastic)
They require drilling 4 holes in the trunk lid and mount through the structure supporting the trunk lid. They sit on a ~ 1/2 inch thick foam pad that transfers the load of the rack and its contents to the trunk lid.
The silver has the appearance of chrome, depending on how close it is to factory new condition.

Do you have a pic of the hitch receiver on the car without the cargo rack installed.If your looking to buy one just because you like the looks and appearance of it ok but if your looking to get it just for functionality wise then I'd strongly recommend getting a hitch put on instead. then buy a luggage rack that slides into your receiver I got one on mine. heres the pros and cons in my humble opinion.
1. you can take the rack off easily
2. you can carry a WHOLE lot more, like 4 good size suit cases
3. 200 lbs Load capacity
4. my opinion the most import and It keeps the everything your carrying behind the car and so it dosent impede on your already horrific field of view. (safety)
5. the hitch is multiversital, can be used for many other applications
6. Made out of tough durable steel.
If you are concerned about the looks of the GM luggage rack and it's quality, don't be. It is one of the best mods I have done. Whenever people see it at "Sol Meets" I always get lots of questions and compliments. Two people within our Ontario club have ended up getting it after seeing it on my car and more are thinking about it. It also works great to hold one bag. Look up some of my old threads on it and you will see it with the bag I made from a motorcycle tail bag.Do you have a pic of the hitch receiver on the car without the cargo rack installed.
I was thinking a silver painted rack would have looked good on the car, but not plastic chrome.
