Waxing the top of a condo sleeper...

Recommended Posts

Pay a professional.  Even so, they're putting their health at risk.  I was having my truck washed this past fall and the guy was on a 6' ladder.  He was rather large and kinda got a little sideways as he was coming off the ladder.  He was only on the second step from the ground when he hopped off the ladder and landed on his foot the wrong way.  Snapped his ankle clean off.  And when I say snapped, think gruesome, 90*, foot literally hanging by a couple pieces of flesh, compound fracture kind of snapped.

Nah, I don't need to be up there.

Not the answer you wanted to see but?     I posted before about using pallet racking as a scaffold.

For me I opened the hood and stood up on the engine and reached as far as I could up the roof, about 1/3 of the way.  The rest was natures problem. 

Me too.  Except I use a mop-like head with soapy water on a pole, and can reach about 2/3s of the way up.   Good enough.

I have a plan for that. Hopefully can reveal in couple of weeks. 

Curious minds need to know. 😎

If you get it good and waxed and all shiny, the birds will poop on it because the reflection blinds them.  This is especially true if there's a high wired close by that they like to hang out on.  Ask me how I know.  ☺️

Rocky, you're close to being right.  Carl shared his idea with me back in June, but I ain't spill'n no beans.

Yes, I thought I was getting close!   But if you spill those beans on the top of that roof, and they dry out, you'll never get it clean!!!!!😆
