Found a great place in England to order a luggage rack for the Spider. They were great to work with and even custom made the lid clamps to account for the taper.

Reminds me of the one I had on my MGB. Looks nice.

Looks really good, what about the price?
Probably cheaper that the "official" fiat one.
Are the pictures of your spider?
did you test use it already?
thanks for sharing anyway...

Do the rubber-backed side mounts have protection where they wrap around the trunk edge (#2 pic, center)? From that pic, it's hard to tell whether there may be some metal-to-metal contact.

Total was $338 including shipping from England. Is there an official Fiat one" I have yet to find any accessories for the Spider.

There is an official one for Europe and Australia but not in the US catalog. I even had my local dealer run the part number from there and it does not show. If we get it may be awhile

The same U.K. seller offers the Abarth lower front bumper lip cap in red. I purchased it this morning. My U.S. Fiat parts guy couldn't find it in his computer system. Maybe I'll take the time tonight to scroll through their store to see if there are any more juicy nuggets.

Auto Ricambi in Dallas has the Mopar rack...$699. Free shipping at least (for the moment). It is removable. And a bit expensive.

Hard pill to swallow.. But I'm gonna spring for the Mopar Rack.... It's as wide as the trunk lid.... fits the car a LOT better...

Looks like the one I had on my old Miata. Wish I'd kept it! It seems these "temporary" ones run around $300 from the link provided. Glad I'm not in the market right now. Id certainly look for a nice used one on Ebay or Craig's list first!

What I'm wondering is how it will affect my radio reception since it will cover up the antenna.
welcome @2vtwin

radio reception would be fine...thats the antenna on the rear quarter panel. its possible the satellite reception "maybe" an issue. but I doubt it.
