R170 Trunk Deck rack

Hi All: I have a stainless stell trunk rack (brand new in box) to fit a 2000-2004 SLK. Easy to install/take off in minutes. Won't damage paint. Looks great and as long as you have nothing on the rack, the roof will strill retract while it's on. I purchased it for my 2006 only to find that it doesn't fit 2005 or newer models. It is made specifically for the SLK. Paid over $200. Will sell for $150 OBO. I am located in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia Canada. Shipping is extra (at cost)

Note: Photo shows rack on a Miata, but this particular rack is made specifically to perfectly fit the SLK.

Update: never sold the rack and ended up taking it to a metal scrapyard. No room to store it.
Never found one to fit the 2006 either. Finally gave up on the idea.
If anyone ever found one to fit, I would still like one so let me know.

Over on our side of the pond widely available.
I.e here Bagagerek Mercedes SLK R171 | Cabrio Styling & Supply and here mercedes benz slk luggage boot rack

No idea if they ship overseas but you could ask.
Now if this is a good idea is another thing. Personally I would be afraid it puts to much strain on the varioroof mechanism eventually causing all kinds of problems.
