Default Thule 978 Easy Rider rack question. .

I'm considering the purchase of this rack to mount on the back of my Honda
Accord. My one concern is the fear that the plastic coated metal clips will
chip the paint as the unit attaches to the upper and lower trunk lid as well
as the sides. The local dealer says not to worry and that the unit won't
scratch or chip the paint, but, I'm not convinced! Does anyone have any
experience with these types of clip-on Thule racks?? Are my concerns
justified or am I just being anal?



Thanks!

I have a Thule model 962 rack on my Saturn station wagon. I haven't
seen any scratches or paint chips. The rack works well for me.
