    Default Racking Ailerons and Flaps

    For painting all sides of my ailerons and flaps I assembled a very simple rack.
    - Vertical 2 x 4's with holes drilled every 6".
    - Cut the 2 x 4's to friction fit between floor and ceiling in my garage/paint booth.
    - Then spaced the vertical stands to suit the length of the flaps and ailerons.
    - positioned the surfaces level between the stands and inserted 6" spikes through stands into the ends of the surfaces.

    This allowed me to paint both sides at once. I could also swivel the surfaces on the nails and prop them up to get at the ends.

    And the same racking worked for my struts
