Looking good there Dave. Bathing an elephant is definately an all day job and requires 12-18 helpers.

John,

Next time I'm calling you! Lure your 18 helpers with the idea that they're gonna get a day on the lake

Looks nice! What's your method? Cleaner? Tools?

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Splitrock,

Thank you. I use a little giant ladder to get to the roof which is probably why I have the backache I do now. I use a fairly stiff bristle brush to scrub the roof along with a wash mitt. I used Maguier's car wash on it. That's about it. Then you put a lot of time - 5 hours. And effort and she comes out pretty good.

I am going to buy some lacquer thinner and clear plastikote and remove the pattern baldness in the upper corners, then I'll recoat and see what that looks like.
