    Nice ! I need a cape for one I have . Tried to buy one from someone in the for sale section thought we had a deal and then he never massaged me back where to send the money . You don't have a extra cape you'd sell do you ?

    Came out great. Hardest part of the turd, filthy, dirt filled coat is getting a tannery to take them and get them clean.

    Here's your million dollar solution.... power washer with a turbo tip!

    power wash with the hair on the outside??? I would think that would cause slippage but maybe not. The last one I did I used wire brushes, scissors as needed (which I didn't like) and TIME. I guess the power washer is no different than the wire brush and proof is in the pudding here..Did you bleach at all in the process with Peroxide? if so at what step?.....thanks for the info

    The power washer got it pretty clean and then used peroxide and basic white after it was mounted Having a turbo blower speeds up the drying a lot
