Here’s how it went. Showing the disrepair of the tower before refinishing. The factory must have used a staple-machine-gun because there were so many staples used… Disassembled and all the old staples removed. The repaired tower next to the duplicate I made from the leftovers. Mine’s bigger, obviously.
