Wing Rack on wheels

I have seen a lot of wing storage racks ...
I didn't like the looks of "storing" some of the creations after the wings were on the plane .
Some of that stuff was as big as a piano .
.
I had an old busted furniture moving cart ,
I patched it while fabricating a tube frame ...Hmmmm , done

Oh, I screwed on a couple of dowels , and put some duct tape to protect the wings from hanger rash
.
I have had TWO sets of wings on it AT THE SAME TIME .
Yet, when it sits alone ...well, it's a furniture mover size , and rolls out of the way.
In this picture , both "SETS" were on the wing rack , which also was storing a lexan sheet
and still rolled around .

The Wings are Kolb Firestar II and a Wittman Buttercup

I'll find better pictures

More crowded pictures ....
With the wings on wheels .
I can move them close to something to get more room.

I still use this cart...

It still looks just as crappy ,
Still does a great job of holding my wings without damaging them
Rolls right up to the spot where you have the wing....rolls it away
It's easy to throw a couple of things on it while it isn't holding Wings.

Still looking for more pix
