Magic polish. Shine an Airstream in less than a day!

Yes. This is what I am looking for. Does anyone know where I can obtain?

Lol, I call BS unless the trailer is already well polished and just needs a touch up.

Polishing to a near mirror finish means removing a thin layer of aluminum, that doesn't come easy.

As the Supreme Director of the Nigerian Trailer Polishing Ministry, I can assure you that we have a great supply of this compound. In order for us to release the shipment to you, we will need you to pay Nigerian export fees and receive an official export certificate of compliance.

Plus, the shipping fees must be paid in advance by wire transfer, of course.

Easy,

To polish your airstream to a high mirror finish in 1 day all you have to do is employ 30 blokes, 15 on ladders and 15 working from the floor, give them the operation to add 2 extra arms each, then buy 60 polishers and 60 extension leads. Throw in 300 cans of beer and a large smoked pig with plenty of slaw.

Job done!

Wow. 30 blokes work 1 day for 10 cans of beer and food? Talk about cheap labor. Do they at least get to keep the polishers and ladders?
