To Paint or not to Paint!

I started stripping a side panel on my Squarestream for painting and I kind of like the bare aluminum look. It would be a lot of work to continue stripping, then polishing, and clear coating. Any thoughts?

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

I am in a similiar situation...I have stripped from the beltline up, Removed all of the "Airstream Classic" and Excello 1000" signs and had them re-painted. I just re-installed them with new rivets. I am now in the process of re-clear coating from the beltline up. Also going to add a white rectangle area on the roof to help reflect some of the heat. As I have seen this on the newer models. It is a process, and living in Florida a hot one...but the results have been fantastic thusfar.
