Looks great. What brand of rack is it?

One caution - do not overload it. The large, flat top of the 49L case flexes quite easily, and will eventually form spider cracks around the mounting holes. Trust me on this one. :(

It's not the inside that matters, as all the force is downwards. I put larger washers and flat rubber pads on the topside of my trunk which helped, but there is a limit.

What does your camera bag weigh?

As you can see below, I seriously overloaded mine. Then later I noticed the cracking. I think it's light cracks on the painted surface only and not on the inside shell, but still I thought it best to mention that possibility.

I'm not sure I just ordered it the dowco roll bag small, 14x 8x6 so I think it can't be that heavy. not quite as big as that . I would figure it was the paint that was cranking.in that case if it does , will try to source out a paint that that will except some kind off pressure
Oh I if you look I did install big washers and rubber on the top part of the case, now you got me thinking if I hope I didn't tighten them too much.

Nah, I believe that's against the law to do that to a GT I have enough problems staying out of trouble as it is don't do this to me.
