In Need of Exterior Polishing in TN - FAST!

Hello! Everyone, meet Bettie! She's my 1956 Overlander beauty and she's in need of some help. I need her in a mirror shine by next Wednesday for an event. I know, I know - a little notice would be nice, but I just found out about it today. I'm in Nashville and am looking for some help within a couple of hours from here. Anybody have any recommendations for a crew looking to make some extra money this weekend? Any leads are greatly appreciated! Thanks so much in advance!

Thanks! I just adore the trailer. She's in very good condition, inside and out. I can't wait to see it completely restored. I know it's a crazy request, but I was hoping that a team of people might be able to take it on. Fingers crossed!

In Need of Exterior Polishing in TN - FAST!

I am in Little Rock, how much are you willing to pay? I will pull some 18 hour days if it will pay me....

Get it to me by tomorrow afternoon, and I can have it out by Tuesday some time providing I can find polish right away, I think I could find polish in a pinch.

Are you seriously willing to live with the potential damage caused by rushing the job?

What you are asking I would consider not realistic without some serious cash.

I wouldn't trust this task to just anyone. Your best, and possibly only, bet would be to call P&S in Ohio and negotiate an emergency fee. I would suspect your looking at $5K or better.

Mine came out pretty good for an old beater, it took a lot of hours.

This looks beautiful! I'd love to hVe you do mine, but I'm afraid Little Rock is a bit too far away. It's a shame. You do great work!

Thank you!

Too bad, I love your trailer, I would have been honored to polish it.

Good luck with your endeavor, it would have been a real push to get that done in four days, especially since my son is out of town.

Make sure to post up some pics when you get it done!

Quick Update! We did get it polished, but not finished. There's still some pitting we need to get to after the event. But, for what was needed, it turned out beautifully! It's being used in a Crystal Light promotion this weekend at the CMA Fest in Nashville. It's sitting right in front of the Country Music Hall of Fame, next to Miranda Lambert's. So fun! If anybody happens to be out for the event this weekend, stop by to check it out!
