    Has anyone got an auto trail with the over cab, if so can you please tell me how to polish the front of it above the the windscreen, after a lot of head scratching and poncing about with a step ladder , nearly putting a me sized dent in the bonnet of my new beauty , I gave up admitted defeat and sought comfort with a can of magners . The rest of it is done and the bit I can't do gets hit with the flies ,,,,, cheers from Devon !!!

    Just a piece of thick foam rubber under the ladder uprights and move it along washing and polishing as you go, better still if you can get Josy to do it for you (cos she is lighter and professional at the polishing):rolleyes:

    I use our Eastern European cousins at the car wash £35 quid, job done. I do spray with Bobby Dazzler when I get home to finish off.

    I use two pairs of big steps (cos I got some) and a plank put them at the front of the van with the plank across and then use me long andled brush, to reach the back bit of the cab I put the plank across the rib behind the cab with a cloth under it so it don`t scratch the body an climb on the roof
