GREAT, Robert, I have the Cyclo polisher and all but still can't get it right. I still haven't polished out the side that I had replaced last year. 'Fraid too...you can demonstrate on it. It's 'virgin' 2024 alclad aluminum.

Awwww man here I go again. Putting my self to work on a weekend. I did this last year as well. Remember Vinnie? I have yet to polish new alclad aluminum as well. But, it's your trailer. I will give it a go What grade of nuvite do you have Neil? I would imagine for new skin it would take like a "c" or "s" grade. I have both if I need to bring them. Should I also bring my power drill with the big buffer?

Also, does any one know if the 70s trailer can be polished like the Vintage ones?

Thanks again Robert.. I have since fixed what was causing those rivets to pop. I made some improvements to the slideout frame and now we are good to go.

NONONO, a demonstration would be all that I would expect not a polishing of the Airstream. I'm just not pleased with the way my work is progressing....errr actually I kinda gave up. I'll bring Nuvites F7 (don't really need that), C and S. I just want to find out what I may be doing wrong. 'Big buffer'? Is that what I need? Maybe an hour of your time....okay? We are going to be right next to Vinnie...I can get you up front for his SHRIMP!

Yeah, we're totally stoked about the rally too, to meet people and see everyone's rig. Maybe our Globie will make you think twice about yours-it's cute but rough. So much I had hoped to get finished, but hey, the journey is part of the fun. This is our first official trip anywhere with the Airstream, really curious to see how it goes.

The Big Buffer made me think of the Big Bopper...

Test cheesy-snack things in the oven at the moment, a Gourmet recipe from a few years ago. So far, they go great with Martinis.

Peter

Panel? I was thinking of what I do best, is supervise

On the other hand, I think you should be slinging your shrimp to Cindy
