Redoing the screens
Now that summer is upon and and camping is looming, it is imperative that we get the screens redone and functional. We have our fair share of biting insects here in Vermont and I want try my hardest not to feed the active insect population with our blood! My sister (Reinergirl on Airforums) showed me how to rescreen them in about 6 seconds so it was a total snap. We semi-polished the frames just to get the serious oxidation off, washed them with soapy water, and BAM screened them. NO MORE BUGS in the traylah! PS We first used mothers's polish which frankly did not work well, then switched to a 3M rubbing compound which was much better. Mind you it left a shiny burnished finish so if you are looking for a mirrored finish do not use this but we are totally happy!
