Hi, This is from Mark Potter and Cathy Webster. We just purchased a 1956 whale tail airstream. We are in the process of rebuilding it now. If we need to patch part of the trailer with aluminum can we make it shine or polish it to match the exisiting trailer, and tips in regards to this, thanks,

What a great purchase and welcome!!

You will soon learn what a great tool the "search" function is....

Do a seach for, as an example..."grade aluminum polish"...

The search engine will point you to previous threads and discussions about the best aluminum or alclad for your scab patch, and also where to purchase the aluminum.

If you only need a couple of square feet, drop by on your next trip to Houston and I'll cut a piece off for you.

More info can be found in the 1978 Sovereign Sub-Forum:
