Try this...

I don't post here very often (if I ever have)...but when I seen this post...thought I'd share one of my tricks/tools.

Instead of using my "fender" folding racks , I purchased 4 Rolling Wardrobe racks from Wal-Mart. They are around $10 each and after painting items I can roll the rack around anywhere out of the way as the paint is drying.

These pictures don't show the rack very good....but as you can see they can be used for paint items as large as headers since they are over 6ft tall.

I too use wire hangers...but I also use 40lb fishing line with hooks tied at the ends (see pic) and make a slip knot on the top bar of the rack. This way I can slide my freshly painted part back and forth to paint all side and also lift it up to paint undersides!

Also.....when not using....these things can be taken back apart and stored in their box which takes up about a 3' X 2" X 4" space!!!!
