Here is the result of spending an hour on a buffing wheel experimenting with the last set of smooth poles. Didn't turn out too shabby. Now TOWTA thinks she wants them. Boy! They are never satisfied.

And how is Ms. Laura doing? Need some update. Glad you folks are safe.

Want to trade poles?

BTW, I just finished polishing the inner poles also. Now TOWTA wants them, but I think she'll have to settle with just getting the inner poles polished, just put the brush finish set on.

TOWMBO has had limited mobility and has not seen how good they look on the camper when polished. I also have a buffing wheel and it looks like a good project for Key West (assuming we get there this year).

So far so good according to the RN who was here yesterday before the storm hit. PS the camper survived very well hooked up to the truck. (added weight).
Thanks to whoever made that tip here.

I will be curious to see how long they stay "shiny."
