That's just the thing Hector. You don't have to anything! You can leave the holes just the way they are, because they don't go all the way through the roof. If you're skeptical, you can fill them with the clear silicone, and paint the metal parts to match.

The front I wouldn't worry about to much. Its just an additional water channel that takes water away from the roof now...lol!

I thought so I remember reading somewhere I didn't have to do any thing. Thanks for clearing that up for me hannes

Thats a good idea Mon thanks

One more thing I took it off just to paint it but now I'm having thoughts of leaving it off. What do you guys think I should do?
I'll try to post some pictures if my pc works but it turn off on its own last night and just won't turn on anymore. Anyways... How can I put up a poll to leave the roof rack on or off?

Unless you really have a need to use the crossbars, I'd say keep them off..... mine looks cleaner without it.

Keep them OFF!! Looks wayyyy cleaner without them!! Makes it look lower too!

I'm sure you're not gonna be putting anything on your roof are ya Hector? LOL!

nope It just gets in the way of cleaning up there lol but I'm still confused on the look and all my family likes it on better. I think they're just use to seeing it.

One question. Since removing it I hear wind noise on the top... Any ideas why I'm hearing that now?

Yeah...it take some time getting use to it. But its well worth it! Umm....not sure about the wind noise. There should be less wind noise if anything because its just roof now!

If you removed the roof rack and there is holes that you haven't silconed up thats probably why you hear it now...

that is double sided tape stuck on there. Use some goo be gone for automobiles. I got some at autozone for all my work involving removing goo.
