I don't like using step ladders myself as you are working sideways when poling a roof. Idealy I've found you need to gain a good height so facing forwards I find easier and safer to do as shown in that vid.

The only time I might use a step ladder or hopup is when detailing the sides.

 

I understand what you are saying so just go careful you don't fall of the thing as step ladders are bloody dangerous to use at any height especialy on uneven and /or sloping ground

As a guess probably just trafic film remover or virosol, ubik2000 etc

Hi Smurf, Ive read a lot of threads when the boys have mentioned using virosol. Whats the best way to apply this product and what type of cleans do you use it for?

 

thanks mate :thumbsup:

I think @Tuffers prefers to use virosol so would be the best person to help

 

Virosol is great for green stuff on plastic. Dilute it at 10:1 and see how you get on. Don't leave it on for too long. Apply by dipping your brush in a bucket of the mix or spray it on with a pump sprayer. Some tiger stripes are too stubborn and a magic sponge with cream cleaner will be needed.

Some say don't use on glass, some say it's ok. I have read some people use it on window clean first cleans. I personally have never used it on glass as I don't see the need. I use Ecover neat on the brush if it's a manky first clean on windows. Apply it on Polycarb roofs but NOT self cleaning glass! Don't leave it on white plastic any more than 15 minutes (well I don't) as the white can turn pink!
