in good shape - brunnhilde part 4

This post is really for my own documentation on how to service Brunnhilde's blind/screen. Starting last autumn, the insect screen of the big awning window begun to become lazy. It got worst quickly over time and eventually it would not retract. I have been very reluctant to tear into the roller blind/screen having read about other owner's terrible experience. Only one of my James Cook Freunde John recent service of his encouraged me to take the plunge.

The painting project for Brunnhilde has finally getting off to a quick start. I have spent much time thinking through the process, the materials I would need, and most importantly decided amongst the alternatives, from the simplest and least cost and work, to the most complex, most costly, and with most work.

Brunnhilde has been sitting idle for the winter months. I recently took her out for a bit of exercise, to make sure everything is shipshape. About 2 years ago after sitting around for months, she developed the limp home mode which turned out to be the oxygen sensor became defective.
