I am 6'1" and used a step ladder to wax the roof.Reddawg said:Haven't waxed my E yet but am wondering how to do the top? I'm not tall enough to reach it, I can stand in the doors and get some of it but not all.
Anyone crawl on top? Use a ladder?
Ahh..the Tyranasaurus complex. There are a couple guys at Thursday night poker who suffer this as well. Always have to scoot the card and chips towards them when they need em.rodaniel said:Although a stepstool does work, you may have to move around 4-5 times to reach all the spots if, like me, you've got less-than-lengthy arms.
There's little doubt about the overall convenience of the poptop method. There should be a warning, however, that many E owner have experienced a loud CRAAAACK when stading on the spare tire cover. I actually had this happen when the salesman was showing me how to work the hatch--'twas an awkward moment. Some EOC posts have suggested filling space around the spare tire with tarps, ropes, and whatnot to support the tire cover. As soon as I gather enough whatnot, I'll be waxing through the top too.rodaniel said:Although a stepstool does work, you may have to move around 4-5 times to reach all the spots if, like me, you've got less-than-lengthy arms. Or you can just pop the hatch and have at it, which also gives you a chance to treat the moonroof gasket with some Mequiars to keep it clean and well-sealing...
