My main goal was to get the buildup stripped off. The trailer was sitting under pine trees for at least 30 years. The pine sap is baked on. Makes the stripping very slow going in those areas.

The heat from polisher wheel actually melts the sap and it gets to be a sticky mess. It eventually comes off. Have to rake the wheel every couple minutes to keep it clean. The worst areas are taking around an hour per square foot. Glad the whole things not like that...lol.

Figuring it is over 600 square feet counting the top. I don't have 600 spare hours!

Took a break from polishing to build a dog house for our shih tzus....

Think it came out pretty good.

Still have to add an automatic water dish on the tongue to look like a propane tank.

Our first weekend camping in it!!

I still have a lot of trim work to do inside and am still on the first cut polishing. We figured we would get a good idea of how we want to proceed with the interior this weekend.
