    My friday detail

    Here is a contest for you. Steve knows how long it took, because I already talked to him about it. How long did this motorhome take to polish? Two guys, me and my fifteen year old non anal son, one PC and a ladder using PWC, so one step. Maybe Steve will offer a prize to the closest guess.

    Three hours and 40 minutes for just the one step and removal. No wash, no wheel cleaning. (Looks like you could add three hours to do the wheels )

    I`ll take a stab at it having done these before -- total "man-hours" (including your son) = 16. Which broken down = about 5 1/2 hours (this is guessing that the whole thing was washed, dried, polished, waxed, windows cleaned, and the exterior tires/trim dressed).

    You asked how long it took just to polish and since you only had 1 PC, I would imagine that one of you were applying the polish and the other removing. If you worked non-stop, I would guess it could be done in about 4 hours with 2 guys (thats just how long to polish) and that assumes you did not do the roof (I don`t know how in the world you would be able to do it anyway)

    Oh you can crawl on top, they actually are walkable. This one has a rubber roof though. I just went up there to pressure wash it off, and then to polish the top parts. So far everyone is high on their time estimates.
    Steve, did that guy give you a call about the spray and wipe? He said he might wait until he was in that third world state that you live in to call.

    At least they have teeth, I am thinking that we have more New Yorkers and Minnesotans here than Native Arizonans... Wait, I think that we do.

    The Motorhome is 37 feet.
