Love the professional job on on your Boler And professional videos! What program did you use for videos?? You are best of show!

Thank you Diane, Jane & Greg

The program I used for the video is Windows Movie Maker 2012. It is available free for any Windows 7 & Windows 8, part of the Windows Essentials suite. You can select which apps from the suite you want to install
Here is the download link from Microsoft
I just started using it and found it very easy to use.
Older versions of Movie maker for XP and Vista can also be found on line.

I kept stopping the video to gawk at what you did at each stage.
You did a great job on the renovation!

Polishing all the aluminum on my Boler continues. This keeps me occupied during these cold snowy days.
Thought members might like to see what can be done with a standard Scamp door hinge by doing a little sanding, filing and buffing. Thank goodness there are only 2 door hinges.

Here they are side by side one before and one after polishing

Need to post another picture a couple months from now to see how it holds up. Are you going to apply some sort of protectant?

I won't use any protectant because that actually decreases the shine, and I am not worried about the parts tarnishing. I have a lot of polished aluminum on my car's engine and it takes very little to maintain it. The key is to polish it properly, this leaves a very slick surface with a thin wax film. Then annually a light touch-up with a cloth and some Autosol which leaves that thin film of wax and very shiny aluminum.

I have been documenting an expanded write-up on the design and development of my Boler. The write-up along with a blog and eventually pictures of our trips and adventure is available on our new website which features a section (still under development) on the build and modification of my Boler, a Cool Stuff Blog where I will post "cool stuff" I find, build, or just neat ideas, and a gallery of our trips and adventures (which I have not even started to develop yet).

I still has a lot of work to do on the site but please take a look, give me your honest feedback, and help me test some of the technology behind the site to make sure it works for everyone.

Can you post either here, on a new thread, or on your blog, detailing exactly your method for polishing aluminum?
