Great deal on Polish Job in FLORIDA

I don't know if this is the correct place to post this, but I just got a great deal on a super polish job from a guy in FL.

I wanted to polish my 19' 1964 Globetrotter, but couldn't do it myself, and couldn't afford $200/ft (which is what everyone charges)

I drove past a house that had a sign out front "Buffing and Polishing". He looked at my AS and we agreed on a price. What a fantastic job he did, every little nook and cranny, to a mirror shine. So pretty! Will post before and after pics.

Dave Parker - 772-323-6158 in Ft. Pierce, FL. Polish for $100/ft

His background is restoring old/vintage cars.

He really got into my AS and said he would love to do more, maybe even negotiate a little on the price. I think we have a new AS enthusiast!

Anyone have a recommendation on a good polisher in the Panhandle of Florida (Ft. Walton/Pensacola/Mobile, AL area)? Ran into a contractor at Lowes the other day whose truck said "RV, Aircraft, and Boat Polishing." He said he had never done an Airstream but gave me an estimated quote of 15-20 dollars a foot! I should have made him put it in writing right there on the spot and scored the deal of a lifetime. In the meantime I'm still searching for someone that knows what they're talking about to give me an accurate estimate...

If PamT is right, tow the AS over.. he's done one.. and can probably make you a 'happy camper' at a good price. Good luck!
Peace and Blessings..

I'm sure he does a good job but Ft. Pierce is a little far from Pensacola. Hopefully there's someone closer with a good rep.

200$ a foot is twice as much as anyplace I know of. 100$ is a standard. I'm glad you got a good polish job ....lets see some pics for comparison.

Hi, I'm in the Haines City area of Florida and have a 1975 27ft Overlander International. Just back from a long trip and she needs some TLC including polishing. Can anyone point me in the direction of some one in the central Florida area. Thanks
