Really, it's not an unpleasant coating, and secondly, it is low maintenance and goes well with any colour scheme.

I also wouldn't want to camp in a "fun house" with a totally polished interior...but that's just me.

I don't know if I mentioned it in the article but make sure you wear gloves, and probably some safety glasses. Citristrip is earth griendly but it will still tear your hands up.

I agree about the "funhouse". That is why I used steel wool to give a brushed lookon the endcaps, then I will just paint over the rest. I had had a second layer of paint on top of my Zolatone which had mildew and was peeling. I never really thought of trying to take one and leave the other layer of paint. Probably not worth the effort.
