I came across this 'vert luggage rack while looking for something else on Ebay:

It's still listed on their website, now whether it's still available is another issue:

I got an answer back from an email I sent and they are still available but over $300. Ouch

That's not too bad for what you're getting.

You might "make them an offer" like many Ebay sellers offer. They may have several sets that they haven't sold any in many years, and they would probably rather sell a set at something than be stuck with them and get nothing for them.

It's worth a try and you never know, but they might actually accept a reasonable offer, and the worst they will do is say no.

If someone negotiates the price down to around $150, I will take a set as well.

I made him an offer that he refused. I found them on a UK website for considerably less and ask if he would price match. He said no so I ordered them from these guys: PT Cruiser Cabrio/Convertible accessories

After freight and currency conversion about $250.00. They sure will look better than the faded and cracking rubber currently on the doors.

Did that $250 including the shipping?

That new chrome trim looks sweeeet!

I think you were pretty lucky that it was still available.

It looks like it should have always been there and was worth every penny you paid for it, that was a great price for what it solves and adds to your 'vert!

How is it held on, with 3M tape? And it's actual stainless steel, should last a long time! Being such long pieces, I would have been worried about it getting damaged in transit, but it looks great!

That's odd how the drivers trim piece looks so much worse than the rest, almost like they are made out of 2 different types of materials.

The same trim on my PT is starting to look like yours did. Not quite as bad yet, and I keep trying different products on them like Armor All or Mothers Back-To-Black. Then they will look fine for a while, then need to be treated again. May just need to replace them.

I just ordered my set. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed.
