    I'm new here, and have a question if anyone can help. I have a new 7'x16' enclosed. I believe the inside walls may be 3/8'' thick. Should I put up more wood panels and attach, and then attach my racks to the new panels I put up? Thanks for any help you can give.

    Run a couple 2x4's horizontally and attach them to the metal studs in the walls. Then attach the racks to the 2x4's.

    i ran my 2x4s vertically, but i didnt use racks...i used hooks i found at home depot for about 5 bucks each...trimmers dont move around much at all and saved myself a couple hundred.
