Does the awning need to be slightly deployed to drill holes and get the pop rivets in?

Acinspp, what kinda of paint did you use? did it stick well to the poles? Been thinking of doing the same or just buying some white powder coated. Not sure which would hold up better?..

You can drill and pop rivet with awning fully retracted.
Just TAKE YOUR time drilling and go slow..
I've drilled retracted and partially deployed you cans do either.

No, can be completely installed in the stowed position if you don't put the 2nd bolt in the upper bracket. If installing the 2nd bolt, it has to be deployed enough to install and hold the 1/4" ss nyloc nut. If you use a pop rivet in the 2nd hole instead of the 1/4" bolt, you don't need to deploy at all.

WOW!
Most poles kits I've ever sold in a week!
I want to thank each and every one of you for the purchase of my pole kits!
10 sets in one week!
Two today alone!
The Busted knuckle fab shop will be busy this week to catch up on the orders!

Thank you all for purchasing a quality product to save your electric awnings, and make your camping experience better.

It is good to see such great responsiveness to the community be rewarded with a surge in sales! It doesn't hurt that the product is great and the picture tutorial really shows how easy it is. It looks like a factory option.
