ski rack for 1990 prelude?

I need a ski rack for my 1990 Prelude Si. [I have 6 pairs of skis plus lots of stuff I need to transport, so there's not enough room for all of them in the car.]

I contacted one aftermarket rack seller, and he said they recommend against putting a roof ski rack on the Prelude because, with just two doors, the brackets can't be spaced far enough apart (fore-aft) to give it enough stability to counter the "sail" effect of the skis.

Is there any work-around? For instance, what if I added a tie that hooked under the front fender or front of the hood, and another that hooked under the rear fender or back of the rear trunk? Or is there a rack designed for the Prelude that attaches to the trunk?

I'm looking to keep the cost under $100.
