When I had my workshop, you'd lift a HQ+ on the hoist and expect the front clip to fall off watching it.

Nice!  is that water you are using to wet down the panel to sight it or Prepsol?

 

I've been using Prepsol in a 2 ltr pump up weed sprayer to wet down my panels and it gives you a good minute or 2 with a wet surface to inspect form every angle. works sweet
