Brought it home from storge on Monday and finally got the time to buff it out and put 2 good coats of wax on it. The clearcoat is still in very good shape so I'll continue to preserve it as long as possible. The hood was in need of some attention so I pulled it off and stripped it. That cirtus stuff works very well! Airstream no longer has the graphics available so I had some paint mixed that matches the grey and burgandy very well. It's a metalic and is going to look great. Shot the colors today and will clearcoat it tomorrow. Going through all the little things that I put off last year.

I've got April 26th through May 25 off so we'll be heading north and east. Big family campout planned in the upper peninsula for Mother's day so we'll rendezvous with the hoard.

Hope to recarpet the bedroom and install hardwood (maybe cork) in the rest. I'll recarpet the fornt wheel wells in the drivers and passenger areas.

Pictures don't really do it justice but its lookin good!

The graphics are in pretty good shape everywhere except across the hood. I'll post another picture when I get it done.

The quick job on the hood came out pretty good. Need to clean up the letters a bit and shoot clear on it.

It's called Citristrip. I've always been suspicious of products that don't contain the "good" stuff like methelyne cloride. Very toxic and stinky. But this stuff really works. I got it at the local hardwar store. I believe I've seen it at Home Depot.

Mike,
I've bought CitriStrip at Home Depot. In the paint department. Stuff REALLy works. Some spots require a second coat of the stuff, but have found out that instead of washing off coated area with water hose, got out the pressure washer and it really cleans the stuff off.
Thanks, Derek

So, that's going to eat the clearcoat off? I've got some stains I'd really like to get rid off, but I'm not sure I want to strip the whole coach!

Yup! Right down to bare metal.

After stripping the hood I used a double action air sander with a hook pad and Scotchbrite pad. It cleaned up real nice and left a very uniform finish.
