My Scamps annual bath

This could be a Tilex Ad...

The inside is getting a sprucing up too. Thinking of redoing the flooring. And Lowe's has a 50% off sale on Levelor Blinds through mid-june that has me thinking of retiring the 80's vintage curtains. That brown plaid is so out of style.

It's been 6 years since I restored my Scamp, and I'm getting the itch of throwing some sweat into it again.

I think this is a new definition for "sweat equity."

The Tilex definitely made for quick work. Using the built in pump sprayer, I just wet a quarter of the roof at a time, (what I could reach standing on the step ladder with a long handled scrub brush), give it about 5 minutes to soak, then took the stiff brush to loosen things up. Then, a rinse off with the pressure washer wand. What stains that remained would get a second pass. I'm going to relocate the Scamp to a spot not directly under the Maple Tree, and if I'm not going to be in it all the time I'll get a car cover. But it's still serving as the occasional backyard office/radio shack, so keeping it covered will be rare.

I bet if you use some Redd Maxx Pro this year you will not have repeat this Tilex again next year, nothing sticks to the fiberglass, even dirt.

Do you have a link to more information about it or where it's available. I've never heard of Redd Maxx Pro.
