Do you come all shined up or did you have to work em some.
The "bright" shine is the result of polishing that was done by the Ruth's when the trailer was polished and Plasticoated at their shop (P & S Trailer Service, Helena, Ohio). I don't know whether the Ruth's routinely polish the tanks on the coaches that they refinish, but my tanks were new-in-the-box at the time and I asked them to polish them at the same time as the trailer. The tanks themsleves are not Plasticoated as the Ruth's felt that the risk of abbraison of the Plasticoat during handling when refilling was too great. So far, a twice-yearly quick polishes with MetAll polish followed by a coat of Walbernize is all that I have done to maintain the shine on the tanks.
