I'm going to try to keep it polished. I would be interested in the clearcoat mention on other threads, but the price is a bit steep right now.
I have to store it outside. Indoor storage around here would be like a second mortgage! Luckily, the weather isn't too harsh around here.

According to the guy that polished it, regular cleaning with a spray on detailing polish works pretty well. I have a case of that "waterless car wash" that has teflon added. I'm going to try that out and see if it works.

Outside of that, taking it back to the "guru" every 2-3 years for a touch up seems to be the plan. It won't take as long or be as expensive next time.

The "WOW factor" is really a trip. I had new tires put on yesterday, and it wasn't until I was ready to leave did the guys realize it wasn't a brand new trailer, but one almost 40 years old.

Hollywood, take that beauty to Hollywood and get it in a movie.
Since you are going to keep it polished doing it yourself you will win any arm wrestle contest anywhere. I just can't get over how gorgeous it is.

I am slowly moving along. Its starting to shine a bit.. I have close to 70 hours in it so far. I still have quite a few more hours to go. I am really enjoying this though. It is very relaxing after a hard day at work.

Smile Warning neighbors may think your odd...

If you park your trailer next to your house, you will be unable to leave or come home without starring at your trailer with a big grin every time you see it!

It's been about three months since I finished mine, and I still gaze at it each time I leave the house.....
