    Evening everyone,

    Hope everyone is having a great Saturday night :).

    I decided to take out my silver polish and walker briarworks stem restore kit so I can work on my Pete silver cap. This pipe was in my local store since 99 and the silver was really tarnished.

    It took allot of rubbing to get all the black off but it paid off big time.

    here is a before where you can see lots of black on the shank cap.

    This pipe is probably the hardest to take good pictures with the glare. anyways Im really happy with the results.

    Great work. Is that a wind cap or an actual cap to secure what's in the bowl?

    its Peterson`s version of a wind cap. Dunhill has hinged pipes also but with lots of holes on the top plate.
