Steve, more I look at it, more I tend to agree with you. Pay attention to the rear window, it appears to be a windshield from an automobile. Look at the upper part, has the upper tint that's common on autos.

I think they put an Excella on a new chassis and chopped the bonnets, then 'customized' the new bonnets...kinda the good, the bad, and the ugly...guns optional, but probable in a rig like that...

Helped a buddy of mine return his SOB back to storage at a local RV park here in St Pete. About jumped out of truck when I saw this parked in the storage yard. Wonder if this individual is on the forum? RV park is Roberts RV Park here in St Pete, FL, off of Gandy Boulevard. Are you out there?
Thanks, Derek

Just realizing that I should've walked to the back and looked at state license plate......Did leave a card asking if he was on the Airstream Forum though!

Can you tell me what's the badge on the front grill? Just went back and looked at your 'leaf-peeping' pix, it's not there, but now is. Just curious.
Thanks, Derek

Hehe. I forgot that was on there. It's A Toyota emblem. Not permanent. It's so plain up there. I am thinking a GMC one.

Myrtle Lynn, any tips on polishing the wheels? Just started on mine today. Got the front and rear caps stripped, but rain stopped me from polishing anything. While waiting for the stripper to do it's magic, I did bust out the polish and buffer and got to work on the bumpers. WOW! Has anyone removed their bumpers? Any suggestions?
Thanks, Derek

Just a lot of time and polish. Hint... Haven't polished mine yet. I use acid to clean them. "Wheel bright"

Yes, they come off easy, remove the bump guards and use Mother's paste cleaner. Works great on wheels and bumpers. I used my Dremel on the bumpers.

Question for those who have polished their motorhomes. I'm looking at Vintage Trailer Supply at the Nuvite. Just wondering, is it worth the savings to go ahead and purchase the 1 pound bucket of Nuvite? Substantial savings over 1/2 pound or 1/4 pound. Once I'm done polishing, will I ever use the Nuvite again? Mine is a 345 and not all of it will be polished. Going to keep my blue and gray stripes (at least for now) Just wondering what others have used and how much they've ended up using to polish their Motorhomes.
Thanks, Derek
