No, but it does need to be clean, no loose stuff, which means a stiff brush as well as a thorough clean.

Pressure wash followed by stiff brush - gotcha - thanks!

I'll pop the wheels off to get right round the back and I'll probably roller it on for control

Thanks

Is that like something that cows wear underneath to keep their milk warm? :getmecoat:
