  easy to remove roof racks
  Posted by: ret603 on Apr-18-13 11:03 AM (EST)

The infinity G35 lacks roof rails. While anything can be added to any vehicle, I doubt you want to screw on rails (I did with a Honda Odyssey.) I once saw a Mazda Miata convertible with a kayak on it's roof rack-would take a while to explain how it was done

The best "easy to remove" was the Thule tracker II rack (now discontinued) if your vehicle accepted their "fit kit"- a bracket bolted into the rails and protruding slightly above the rails. On and off in less than a minute. I made adapter plated and installed the Tracker ii on my late Rav4 V-6. Thule has discontinued this system and their rack feet now must be bolted on. Yakima still has some removable racks, but they probably would require some unacceptable (to you) modification of your vehicle.

The best remaining system would be something that sits on the edge of the roof and clamps to the top of the door frame. Check both Thule and Yakima to see which fits your vehicle best and which is quickest to remove. Best is to go to a vendor that carries both lines and test fit both to your car.
