Just received our set of awning poles from OC today. That was quick..

Hope the weather continues to warm up and the snow melts so I can get the awning poles attached.

Thanks Neil - I think they are going to work great.

Thank you Jimandchris, now you can spend the time while the snow is melting by polishing the poles so they look like chrome.

Yep, not a bad idea, since it's gonna be awhile before the snow is gone.. Not being able to work on getting the trailer ready is almost as bad as waiting for it to show up at the dealership! Been a long winter - this one.

OC,

What do you recommend we use to polish our sets? I bought him a power polisher/buffer some time ago....still new in the box.

Any certain brand buffing compound you'd recommend?

We have some "buffing compound" that I use to (hand) buff out minor scratches on my Jeep. I'm wondering it that would work?

Sheesh, how much jeweler's rouge did it take for her to do that?

ELEVEN HOURS? Did you follow labor regulations and allow her paid breaks? Did you pay her OT after 8 hours?



I told ya I might hide DH's clubs until he gets them polished and installed.

Well, Houston we have a problem....

Came in from work at lunch today, and there he was in the kitchen with his golf catalogs spread out on the counter (he makes custom clubs) on the phone ordering new heads, shafts, and grips for himself! AND a new golf bag.

(just laughing) When he got off the phone he said "I bought the components for new wedges for you too!" /snort

I might have to hang out here at the house and confiscate that shipment, then hide it until he gets the poles job done.

I let her do them over 2 days.

Weezer you have other power available to entice/force him to polish the poles.
