Quite a rack...

I swear this dude glued the kayak racks on his roof. There were no drill holes at all. I guess he used quality glue.

While the rack is impressive, I wonder how they get the kayaks on and off.

Gravity should solve the problem with getting them off.

Well, they pretty much glue airplanes together these days, including the big passenger jets and are now starting to assemble some ordinary cars with glue too. I wouldn't be worried about gluing on a car rack.

It might have blind studs (that we can't see) welded to the underside of the 3x3 plates, thru bolted inside. Clearly a ginormously wonderful rack, the guy who built it has skills

I think you have a point. Really it's just a matter of hiring the right people to glue things together. I have learned in my life that there are two kinds of people, those that can use glue and those that can't. It's mainly super glue I speak of, but I think the same applies to any adhesive, either home or industrial. Unfortunately I am not one of those who can glue.
