The awkward roof situation I've described also prevails when applying conventional buffing waxes and employing a bonnet buffer. Given the general level of engagement with the minutiae of the mechanical arts that I see here every day, I am amazed that these difficulties are never mentioned???????

I will fess up to all of the above, but will also brag that my VT has RedMax on everything but the AC Shroud and if I had Jack's setup I would have even gotten to that.

Michael J -- Did you wash the Sham Wow before using it? I bought a HUGE box many years ago and still have alot left. If they work, I can finally use them for something else.

Actually I bought the Poli Glo applicator. My experience with "as seen on TV" products is limited to Yoshi blades. When I ordered I was offered even better upgrades and as the excitement built as I ordered more and more with only having to pay shipping and handling . I wanted to know the total before committing. Unfortunately you were committed before you could get that info. I give them credit for the way they did it and chalked it up to lessons learned and have not repeated my error again. The blades were OK just paying 2X the base cost for shipping grated on my German penny pinching heritage.
To answer your question , I would rinse and wring before using. If they work you may offer to other members for free, all they have to do is pay shipping and handling(wink, wink)

Totally impressed. Only thing better would be a mobile man lift with a fiberglass cage and safety harness. I think OHSA may want to discuss your set up , at least 3 or 4 violations that I can see not including the MSDS sheets for RedMax that you probably don't have on file with your on site safety plan.

Gee Mike, I thought everyone else had bucket lifts. I guess long arms work. Maybe pogo sticks also. I noticed Perk admits to one hand for the ship and one for himself on that centerline ridge.

Same with me, the issue was the step ladder wanting to walk as my drive is on a decent slope, the bath vent was my life line but the other hand smeared my just applied swath.

Very nice set up! I am envious. When you finished one section on the trailer did you move the trailer or move the scaffolding?

Wheels stick in the the yard. With a helper I could probably horse the scaffold around to the other side but I take the braces off and reassemble in the driveway. Pretty badly pitted setting out in the weather for forty years. Last summer I put a coat of Penetrol on the frames to stop them from rusting thru. Has to outlast my ability to set it up plus ten minutes.

I do not see the black plastic surrounding your area in case of toxic spills. If any of that stuff were to run off and get into a local stream we may have to bring in the Feds. Nor do I see an aspirator in use, I'm afraid the inspectors may have to shut down this operation!!

Point taken. Few toxic molecules downstream. Not good but not much worse than the 50 gallons of herbicide on the neighbor's lawn. I understand why one might not wish to listen to advice about personal safety from an environmental criminal. If working real hard to make sure you maximize the risk of being less than two stories up appeals to you, hey, go for it.

Jack, how do you get the photographer to always catch your good side?
