I had the car up for other reasons and I don't think it would be enough. I know a full can is the best also. So the spraying was only optimal for a little bit. I did this standing on the doorsills too. If and when I finish the roof, I'll use a higher point. She has the car now and my chances of getting it back are slim.

Yeah, make sure you have multiple cans, I only had one, and really could use a few more, too bad I have to drive to the US to get the stuff. SHipping that stuff over the border is expensive, if it doesn't get stop by customs. The US version is illegal in Canada for some reason.
