Step 1:

We painted the tubes so the small bits that show through the mesh of the fiberglass where a matching color. He chose silver. It looked good and white would have also looked good. After we painted we inserted the tubes into the fiberglass sleeve and glued it down.

The rest of the steps are in the video. Please click on the youtube icon and give Him a like. I know he still is checking it and reading comments and he did a great job. Enjoy......
