    Not a bad idea. Where does one get a pole like that? Had anyone seen anything like that where you can mount a mf mitt?

    for polishing, if they have a sunroof, i open it and work from inside the car
    The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

    I use one of these. Bigger surface area to stand on than a step ladder so found it safer and more comfortable. Originally used a step ladder but wet metal steps saw me almost take a tumble. Cheapest place I found them was ebay. Even better if you can time it for when they have a x% off everything sale.

    Only downside to the safety step is they're not as tall as a step ladder so depending on height of vehicle along with the individual it may not be enough.

    They have them at SCA and Autobarn for about $30 - $35, but I bought mine at the local Toyota Dealer for less than $20. They had a stack of them in the corner. The mitt is actually a hood that fits over a screw on plastic backing plate that also has a foam layer.

    Been using an Ikea bathroom stool or stand on the door sills for many years, which is far from ideal nor safe.

    Finally bought a work platform made by Gorilla from my local Total tools. Adjustable height and also very useful as a temporary bench for onsite jobs. It's also extendable along its length.

    If anyone wants me to post a pic of it let me know.

    The wash poles are great, anyone know of a drying attachment for the pole?
    Nobody should ever stand on upturned milk crates, the plastic decays in the sun and the injuries to your leg after your foot crashes through are horrific.

    Sew some elastic around the edge of a drying towel.
    Use the wash mitt as a rough pattern.

    Gave my new Ranger it's first wash last weekend. I've got to start buying smaller cars.
