I need a ski rack for a 1990 Honda Prelude Si. I contacted one aftermarket rack seller, and he said they recommend against putting a roof ski rack on the Prelude because, with just two doors, the brackets can't be spaced far enough apart (fore-aft) to give it enough stability to counter the "sail" effect of the skis.
Is there any work-around? For instance, what if I added a tie that hooked under the front fender or front of the hood, and another that hooked under the rear fender or back of the rear trunk? Or is there a rack designed for cars like the Prelude that would attach to the rear or trunk?
I'm looking to keep the cost under $100. [BTW when I went on the Thule site -- thinking I might be able to get one on Ebay -- their product finder said they had nothing for a 1990 Prelude.]
