Wash me

After more than six months sitting under a cedar tree, Toad was looking rather sad.
Sunny and warm today so I tackled the job with assist from Leslie. It was just a wash job. Waxing will come later, when son-in-law finds time between his two full time jobs.
This is the result of using Simonize Wash and Wax solution several times during the year, and one or two coats of a good quality wax ( applied by son-in-law with his Porter Cable polisher.
I can't imagine having to wash a trailer cover coated in green slime, and then washing the trailer.

Not sure what son-in-law will use, but no, not Poli-Glow and not Zep either. It will have to be a wax, methinks, so that it will be compatible with my Simonize Wash and Wax.

I think it's the same one I have. A Porter Cable 7424XP. Great tool.
