Questions re my 83 Exella

Hello to all
I have started polishing my 83 Exella and have about a million questions.
1. Will this ever end ?HA
2 Do you take off the clearance lights and how do you polish them?
3 Do you remove the awning brackets?
4 I have notice that the very front of my RV has bad rock pits, I saw one with the sprayon bed -liner for trucks on the very front acting like a rock guard?
5 About the trim at the bottom where the sides and bellypan meet, do you remove and replace?(mine is lose now)
6 About the blue stripe in the middle what have everyone been doing?
7 The PO has put calking everywhere1/2 in wide?
8 And I can tell anyone that sillycone comes off very easy and the other is stuck, I know what I will put back
9 The airstream letters across the front do you remove and if so how?

all help and opinions will be helpful Billy

housebg, I'll answer # 1 and and #9 just to save you a little searching time.
#1. Does it ever end? No.
#9. Each letter has 2 threaded stems on the back with locknuts behind the skin. The only way to get them off without breaking the stems is by gaining access from the inside of the trailer but since that's not a wise option, I suggest leaving the letters in place and polishing around them as best you can.
