    Hi
    Just don't get to near the skylights etc they will be the weak spots, other than that you should be ok, just watch yourself when its wet, it's a long way down. Pete ::bigsmile:

    As above but I wouldn't advise you stand on the over cab bit if you have a C class.

    you really don't have to actually get on the roof (unless you have short arms!:Sad:) If you have a ladder, protect the ends by at least 50mm of padding, I place a folded 3m x 1.8m cloth over the ends.
    Then wash, each side, dry, chamois or just drive it round the block, then apply polish to each side as far as you can reach, difficulty reaching? use a soft Broom, to wash, cover in cloth to dry, to apply polish to polish clean.

    no need to climb up there:RollEyes:
