Jack up the rear, put it on stands, pop her in drive and let the truck do the hard work. Seriously probably not the best idea because you would have to sit under the truck, but i'm sure it would work...

FYI: It worked like a charm to polish my PYOs after I stripped the clear! Had all 4 off the ground tossed her in drive let them spin while I used the powerball and a cloth w/ some Mothers Mag Aluminium Polish
