I've been using a decorating platform with the uprights wrapped pipe lagging for doing work on 4x4's MPVs and Vans. When my van id full it's a PIA to get in and since I don't use it every day I tend not to load it. I've been looking for a smaller folding type step and nearly bought one from Autobrite for about £35. I popped into Costco tonight and picked up a Youngmans folding workstep for about £20. It's a absolute bargain and is going to make life easier for sure!!

I also picked up a bale of 60 terry towels for £17 - Not suitable for paintwork use, not with detailing anyway, but great for door shuts, engine bays, drying wheels etc.

I always get at least one pack while I'm there. We have a Makro and Costco at Bristol, about half hour drive from us, but I prefer Costco

Though the MF cloths are currently down to 8.49+VAT at the moment.

Don't fancy using cheese on customers cars :VF

Why are they not suitable for paintwork? They are microfibre.

Some of the cheaper microfibres will mark the paintwork, use a cheap microfibre on the
shiny side of a cd and you'll see why they are not suitable for paintwork :)
