Thumbs up Drank The Kool-Aid

Well, I finally broke down and did it.......I decided to take a different approach to polishing out my 1958 Pacer.......
I thought a racing stripe around the entire trailer would be a nice touch.......So here it is in the preliminary racing stripe stage.

For 53 year old aluminum sitting in the Arizona sun most of it's life, it looks pretty good. Some of this is the second pass and although it has improved considerably, it still needs a lot of work......

That looks great although I think your strip should be much taller.

This Arizona sun really makes the new shine jump out doesn't it? What method(s) are you using and what polish?

Now that's an original idea.

Looks great.

You' ll probably need a set of canned replies for all the people that ask "When are you going to polish the rest of it?"
