This may or may not be common knowledge but I thought I would throw it out there so others may be as excited about it as I was. Rather then spending mucho moneys on 'custom cleats' you can actually use channel nuts, which happen to fit perfectly in the track. I got these at home depot / lowes for about $4 per bag of 5. The spring is a nice addition considering it holds the nut in place while you bolt into it. :thumbup:

Hope someone gets use from this!

At the particular home depot I went to, they at 1/4", 3/8", and 5/8" if I remember correctly. I went with the 3/8 since I will be using them for a bike fork mount and I wont need anything too serious. But yea, they were all about $4 for packs of 5.

Oh, and they can be found in the electrical conduit aisle.

I don't trust the unistrut that's in there and I replaced it with real electrical or plumbing strut. There really isn't a lot gripping on the Nissan strut

Nice. Do the stock tie-downs fit them?
