Wing Stands Finished

I finished up the wing stands today. I cleaned the steel with some Simple Green which made quick work of the oily residue that was on them. I then gave them three coats of Rustoleum’s pro grade spray paint.

  1. Love this blog. Been reading and watching your stuff on YouTube for a while. I’m about to start building my stand, and although I can’t drill into the concrete at my hangar, I do like the concept. Are you happy with the distance you had between the two wings to be able to work on both sides?

    • Thank you for the comments and for viewing our YouTube channel. I was very happy with the space I had. As with anything you can always use more but I was able to make this work very well and still park my vehicle in the garage. Reach out if you have any questions! michaelfoss@rv8-hangar.com
