?? I don't understand this??

You mean you drove by and there were Latinos working there?

Or you mean you and your INS buddy went by and inspected the work records and employee data and found none of them to be in the country legally?

While I don't live in Texas, I did grow up where there are LOTS of Latinos, and by golly MOST of them were here legally, and good positive citizens. But most importantly, I could not, and still can't decades later, LOOK and tell.

Its in Saginaw Texas. Just north of Fort Worth ( Saginaw Borders Ft worth off loop 820)

Ok, Not sure of the products he used. Dewalt with several wheels. Finished with a white pad and wax. My trailer was very scratched up from PO. They made it look great. Now I can work on the smaller detail. They couldn't get every little scratch out. The Guys were great, honest and fair. What more could you ask for. I was able to drop off and pick up! (without black hands and face, dirty towels, sore muscles) Im very Happy...... Go to my pics and see the first pics when I picked her up! And now look. Proofs in the pudding! Once again it's 48 yr old aluminum and they did a nice job.. Please Private Message or Just Call me 817 988 2312, WADE

Not even a Chance. (illegals) These guys are straight up! Just a Detail shop that does Aluminum Tankers etc. I know its Texas but Come on! Not Building Fence or Laying Concrete. Just Honest Guys making a living in a tough economy. $600 is better then nothing. (I think) everything has gone down. Buyers and Builders Market!

Ok Xtreme Big Rig Mobile & Detailing 308 S Saginaw Blvd 76179, John 817 706 4351.

Also Remember they are used to working on tankers that are triple the size of a AS. He said it's kinda nice to have a break with a small AS..

Thanks
I don't have a cyclo, and the ones I found were expensive. I found a 7.5" 600-3000 rpm polisher online for $60 and that's in my price range. I think fast is bad because you can burnish the polish onto the aluminum.

Hey, Trophy, congrats on your score - I'm happy for you and your trailer looks great!

I would be interested if they stripped first also. I would love not to have to strip due to where I park my trailer. I don't think they would want me to strip it there, no matter how "harmless" the process can be to the environment if you use certain products. Plus, since a lot of mine is still in good shape. I would hate to strip it all first and then watch is oxidize as I worked my way around the trailer. The alternative would be to spot strip and polish.

I would be interested to know if they used any acid wash initially.After talking with some truckstop service guys and a trailer service I know in the area, most of these tanker polishers and horse trailer polishers use an acid wash to cut through all the corrosion.
I would certainly ask.No sense in having a leaker for life.

I've seen that also. What about the citrus?. Mine was just cleaned real good before I handed it over to the guys. No acid on my end...
