Yeah, I was thinking along those same lines when I woke up this morning. Too bad its raining and my back has been out of sorts for the last few days. I can't imagine making it worse on purpose

Gents:

New to the site. We purchased a 27' Soverign that needs the front center skin replaced along with the back window. I am planning to gut most of the interior as this is my sons project for a paragliding hang out. What are the different compounds you are using to polish? G6, F7 etc. Where do you find these? Also do you know of a good site for skins and R&R processes?

Thanks

Bryan

Welcome Bryan~

You couldn't do any better for skin / panel replacement than Oasis RV in Tucson. They have been around a long time, have a long list of satified customers and only handle Airstreams. Vintage or new, doesn't matter to them. Joe Pershing runs a fine place.

As for the Nuvite, try Vintage Trailer Supply. They'll treat you right and get your order right out to you.

What are you plans for the rear window? How much needs replacing?

Keep us posted on your progress and we want to see some pictures.

Brad

Alansd, things to remember..
1st..get yourself a piece of scrap aluminum to work with. Try scratching the name into it and do your work on that..I betcha will have better results on your trailer..When you get to it with what you learn from the scrap piece..Good luck~ I also have a few scratches to remove..
