Looks awesome, especially the last pic, the "festive" picture. Doing the chimneys, yeah me too, too high for sense of balance anymore, could not do it.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try anything to make the job easier. Mothers just seemed to work the fastest. The never dull left and oily sheen that needed to be buffed off and the shine was no where near as good as the Mothers. I will look for some of that White Diamond for sure!
