I got the cotton fabric from the fabric store. It's a mill end store and they have a ton of fabric. I got soft white cotton but not "t" shirt cotton. This is heavier, like a sweat shirt. One side has a downy feel to it. I start out with a chunk maybe three foot by three foot. I cut slits in the cloth to go over the motor and over the handle.

I polish with the slit over the motor, then I move the cloth down to the handle position and polish the same spot with just the cloth, no polish.





Look at this page:

I used the white compound after red, it was an incredible difference.

I used a 10" white open not sewn as recommended by Caswell.

Now just cleaning up the black crud.

Too funny!

Good one!

But on a more serious note, what are y'all doing for the roof.

I'm thinking Black/Sewn Wheel, Brown/Sewn Wheel, and then cyclo
with Nuvite C.

Not like anyones looking at it, plus it's a little sketch up there, even on scaffolding.

Thanks in advance,

TIMK

I think I've settled on Kool Seal Elastomeric Roof Coating white for the roof. No to roof polish, yes to paint.

We're on the home stretch of the first cut after about 90 hours (this week) using a ten inch wheel. We've used an entire jar of Nuvite F7 and a grey bar and find them equally effective, but he grey bar is much cheaper! My question is: What do you do in the tight spots around the bumper, etc. I weigh about 100 lbs. and the big wheel and high RPMs seem dangerous!

I know it's too late but the black bar may have saved you 40 hours

Go to the Caswell website they have small wheels in all kinds of shapes

I did a fair amount of hand polishing.
