Fiberine Top roof rack install

My son bought a 2001 E350 UJoint conversion van. Has a Van Specialties interior. It has a Fiberine 16" aerodynamic top. The front curvature of the top makes it difficult for a full roof rack. Aluminess says they do not make one as well that fits. Any of you out there have the same top and put a roof rack on?

A number of years ago I think Derek at CCV had a similar top and had made his own simple rack out of I think galvanized tubing. You can probably do a Google search and find a photo. I am not sure the material he used was ideal but it was light and it seemed to fit his needs then.

i remember quickly eyeballing that rack setup when i visited his shop in 2012, but was so intrigued with the poptop park of his van, i really didn't see anything else...

hadn't been to ccv's site in quite some time and decided to poke around a bit. couldn't find any photos of that rack he made, but you can see numerous different angles of the setup in this video:
