And exactly how do I get up "there"?

Dear 24S owners...

Just bought my 2011 last August from a lcl dealer and within a month had it paste waxed (dyi) 5 X 5...except...for the lower front of the 'cab-over" AND
"underneath" the beast that is over the driver\passenger cockpit area. I've figured that I can lay down on the front part of the roof and wax 'down" a
few feet on the very front of the cab-over but that's as far as I can reach.
Talk about back aches after that!

So, my question, I guess...are there any special long-and-handy waxing tools avail. for getting the rest of that area including underneath the cab-over which looks like another back breaker? I'm talking Meguiras paste wax there or Mother's Gold every year. Summer bugs up there must be a pain in the bottom? I haven't driven it enuf to experience that luxury...yet.
I was thinking one could stick a plank through the side windows of the cockpit doors, put it on some padding...climb up there and wax away but am not sure if I would still have enough reach to get ALL of the leading edge and underneath(am 6 ft. tall...). However, theres GOT to be a better way so someone please enlighten me! I KNOW keeping it waxed in the front will at least help my gas mileage by at least 0.1 mpg! -PB

I use a long handled flat mop with terrycloth pads. One pad to apply and another to remove. Big pain in the you know what but does do the job.

I just open the garage -pull up so the hood is actually inside and have about 1 ft clearance between roof and cab-over. Then I use my ladder and get on the roof... and have easy access..
