Airstream polishing in progress

It is taking longer than anticipated due to the bad weather this weekend, but it's getting there....

First, all the clear coat had to be stripped off the trailer. Most of the clear coat on top had been burnt off by the sun, this is what the sides looked like as the stripping was in progress.

After the clear coat was removed, one of the men buffed out around all the doors and windows and on the seams around the rivets. The area between the "Airstream" letters and the license plate has been stripped. It is shinier than it was but not as shiny as it will be.

You can easily see which areas have been buffed and polished.

Buffing out the front end cap. The side is stripped, washed and ready for buffing. See how the men are buffing around all the doors, windows and seams. Those two doors under the window are the battery compartments.

Those silvery things sticking up in the air are the support brackets for the awning. They have been detached so as not to be in the way of the buffing. The area beneath the blue stripe on the bottom of the trailer will not be buffed out. That is the area that gets most of the road dirt, tar, and rock chips. It is shiny and that's about all I can say about that.
