What a depressing thought. Up here though, we might still have a month or more of winterishness. So I think I'll continue "psyching" until the first of May.

Cochese, it looks like your trailer is already polished. Jestco is a "rouge" abrasive with a cotton wheel at 3000 rpm. It works great for the first and second passes. If my trailer looked as good as yours, I'd grab the cyclo and maybe some F7 or good old S. Jestco recommend metal armor, but I haven't used it yet.

Be careful not to scratch up your already completed hard work!

Good progress today, I'm using the pink bar for the re polish & it's working very well. I did the roof (side sections) today, then followed with the cyclo. Luckily I had some "S" ,because I don't care for the metal armor much,as of yet! The Jetsco pads work great at getting between rivets way better than the wool pads... So far so good!

There are a lot of your hours spent polishing your Airstream. Ever notice how difficult it is to take a picture of a polished Airstream?
