I just asked a similar question in your other thread but this looks like a option for those of us with racks that are contoured around an exhaust.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't this plate be used along with some extension piece at the top to make a flat side on racks that have contour for exhausts? Every considered making an adapter for this purpose?
