DON"T paint them. I use Simichrome Polish on mine.

Nevr Dull to clean and polish, the Flitz to seal. Works well on the aluminum belly band and door drip cap too!

I think mine are more "pit" than frame. I don't have that many elbows.

Hi: AndyGee...I missed that cream at the hardware& could have used some doing my windows. Here's a pic 'r two of the total rebuild of the famous Hehr window. Backset& glass seal gaskets,& crooked little operators, and nylon sliders...all avail. at Vintage Trailer Supply. Polished with Nevr-Dul too.

We just bought our Boler and I've been reading all that I can regarding improvements. We also have original Boler windows (1974). Can these products also be used outside and, if so, does any special care need to be taken to protect the gelcoat?

Have no idea if it can harm the gelcoat but I have used the Nevr Dull on the belly band and it makes a mess on the nice white trailer as the black will get onto it. Would be worth your time to put some wide masking tape aroud the window frames before doing.

Thanks...great idea. Was caulking windows today (off to Texas in 9 days) and after doing just one window realised painters' tape (the green stuff) or masking tape would have saved some time and resulted in a much straighter bead.
