Crates are forklift-maneuverable plywood boxes constructed by either the shipper or appropriate local crating service or even purchased from a vendor of pre-assembled crates. Crating is frequently necessary for furniture like sofas and couches and is a logical practice in order to protect any bulky or delicate items during the shipping process. Open crates are sometimes used as well, which is a box of wood framed around the item(s) on the pallet instead of completely enclosed in plywood as with a normal crate. Further, the crate's contents more than likely need to be secured or strapped down inside as well.
Forth, "Section the bike off", in your mind's eye. How many times have you seen a friend start on the mirrors and end up 5 minutes later on the exhaust tips and nothing in between done very well? I call this the "hop, skip and jump syndrome". He'll clean from spot to spot for a long time and when he's done the bike isn't. The poor guy tried to clean the whole bike at once, never had focus, never had a muscle routine and ended, after too much time, with a bike that's "ok" but not detailed like yours.
Let's start with what I think is about the most important thing "protect that attitude". I know that isn't where most people start however without it cleaning that scoot will always be a headache. How do I protect it? First, get a motorcycle lift. They're not all that expensive these days. I got mine at Harbor Freight for about $300.00 and I can't tell you how much easier it is to clean any bike. You can get them much cheaper even as little as $60.00 or so. But my point is to get that baby up in the air so you don't have to hurt your knees, back or anything else. Nobody looks forward to kneeling or bending over for hours at a time. Do you think that might be a reason your friend's bikes may not be so clean?
The next test involves cranking the car, and being safety aware (no hanging jewelry or long hair) and measuring voltage at the battery terminals. Read the voltage on the meter as someone else cranks the vehicle. The voltage should not drop below nine or ten volts. You may want to repeat this test to get an accurate reading. If the voltage is not within spec you should consider a new battery, or have your starter professionally tested.
I started looking around at artists taborets and rolling work tables and found them too expensive to be practical. It seems if something is labelled as art studio furniture or art materials it automatically comes with a pretty hefty markup and price tag. Even basic rolling shelves and carts from the big discount art stores online were in the neighborhood of $200 with several above $400. I considered buying lumber and building some shelves from scratch, but then it occurred to me to look around at the office supply stores and in the home furnishings departments of stores like Walmart and Target. I considered everything from rolling computer desks to kitchen carts and tool boxes. I checked Lowe's and Home Depot and even Harbor Freight and found there are numerous items marketed for home use or DIY workshops ready made that would function well in an art studio.
