I've had this idea in the back of my mind for a while too. I even had formed sheet metal parts that bolted into the holes used to receive the clips holding the carpet under the trunk lid. It was tricky to get the shape right and there's not much of a gap there. It made very solid anchor points once the lid was closed though. I used the brackets to test an extension and planned a kammback (would have been a single lexan sheet on an alu frame), but never go around to building it as I could not find an easy solution to mount a hinge at the roof line without drilling the car.
