Need Thule Roof Rack Help

Hey everyone,
Wanted to see if anyone out there could help me. I am gonna be getting the 400XTR Thule Roof Rack system soon for my '03 Pontiac Sunfire.

Yes I know its a crappy car. I spend more money on my bikes

Anyways, I need some help. Does anyone out there have this installed on the same car or one similar? Im trying to figure out placement and I already tried the directions that come with the foot packs. I just dont think it will work. Any thoughts, ideas, or pictures will be greatly appreciated.

I've installed a bunch of Thule roof rack systems but never on an 03 Sunfire. I have to say. however, that I've always simply followed the instructions that come with the foot pack and everything's always worked out fine.

BTW, the 03 Sunfire is exactly the same body as the coupe version of earlier models of the sunfire and the chevy cavalier coupe. Anyone out there have this on one of those cars or see one?

roof racks are just one of those things you have to screw around with a bit before you get them right.

Experiment until it seems to fit right.
