I am comfortable assembling and installing engines and transmissions. This was much worse. The instructions were poor. Firstly, the track has a plastic/vinyl insert that acts as a final base. This is flat and is drilled with holes for the track fasteners. It works as the perfect template. Unfortunately, the center-to-center hole distance is different from the track itself. This is an amazing manufacturing flaw. Do you realize that the holes I drilled into my roof don't match the track? The center-to-center hole distance is off by about 1mm. So, as one progresses down the track the holes misalign more and more. This means I had to elongate / oblong the holes in the track to match the holes in my roof. The inserts tangents don't even match the track tangents. That's the starting hole... So everything is misaligned. WHAT A PITA. I could never imagine it would be so poorly made and designed and I haven't even gotten to the riv-nuts. I had two spinners on the driver's side and one on the passenger side. I want Thule to replace my roof and go with a soft rack for less than $100. What an incredible waste. I recommend Rack Attack not sell any of these again without first verifying center-to-center hole matching, use a proper riv-nut tool, etc...
