You definitely are going to run into different types of aluminum which will polish to different levels intensity. I would recommend the Nuvite products after you get the clear coat stripped.

I have recommended that stuff ( alsa) from seeing cars using it, but not anyone here that I know of. I also like the chemmetal products, and have used a german made aluminum wall covering inside my trailer. It looks good, but the sticky back had to be ammended with stronger glue.

Polishing Advice...

the polishing gig has been covered in great detail on theVAP - The Vintage Airstream Podcast - Home all you need is a computer w/ a sound card and speakers; pretty common these days. you can use iTunes to download the programs or goto the site and download individual shows. it's free, and it's 99% airstream related.
