Recently I had the Spitfire off the road for some much needed repairs and maintenance.  One of the features I decided to finish up was a hang glider rack for carrying my glider to and from the beach.

Sparky carries my hang glider


The glider is much longer than the car, and it looks a little silly, but it works.  I built it in such a way that the rack slides into some telescoping tubing underneath the frame of the vehicle.  Cotter pins hold them tightly in place.  The rack can be removed and stored with the glider for later.

I need to make sure I can make it back and forth to the beach and/or mountain, but I think I can, and confidence is half the battle.

Still wet from a fresh wash.
