Maybe I'm seeing things, but your rig looks mighty shiny already. What the heck are you polishing? Some of us don't like clear reflections...

The goal is to have it so shiny that NASA can see it with the Hubble Telescope..

My new Cyclo polisher will arrive in a few days...not enough time to make our coach a 'twin' for Hubble to look at. Robert, I'll be looking for polishing with Cyclo tips from you. I like the shiny rigs but if our coach had not been polished when we got it 3 years ago I wouldn't have polished it. It is a lot of work. However, since it is mostly done the polisher is to remove the swirls. Like that I don't have enough to do. And...now we got a new
(14') street side panel to match to the rest of the coach. Sure glad that our house isn't aluminum!

Sure Neil, I have lots a tips. Don't buy any beach front property in Kansas I would suggest a demo, but thats to much work for a relaxing weekend. Plus I've already volunteered myself to do some riveting. But Q& A's over some coldies sound like a great idea.

What time does her shift start?...Oh, and the lovely and gracious missus wants to know "Does the pool boy deliver the wine?"

The rivet shaver and rivets have arrived. Turns out that they are the same rivets (albeit smaller diameter) used for attaching panels to Butler metal buildings, the Airstreams of their industry. That would make them a great product in my book.

Her shift? Those look like 'man hands' to me!
