Factory Roof Rack Options - '04 WRX

Are you guys aware of any roof rack options for an '04 gen WRX that DON'T slip into the door rubber seal to mount the load carrier, like the example below?

The '08+ gen factory roof rack mounting is better than this, and I'm a cyclist with a big-wing Rex that precludes trunk mount bike attachment.

How so, Blaze?

The '08 has machine screw holes under flaps in the roof rain rails for the factory load carrier. I see none of that facility for mounting on my '04 WRX.

I'd love to be able to redeploy my '09 rack system to the '04 WRX, if it were possible.

I'll try to find the thread. If I can find it, I'll post up the link.

V that's a Yakima thread, but search around and you'll find other nifty ideas with stock and other companies stuff...GL
