How much Nuvite F7 and S do I need to polish a 16.5 ft'er

Hi Guys,

I have a 1960 16.5 ft travel trailer and I want to polish it up nice and bright. It doesn't appear to ever been polished before. I was thinking that I would need to get some Nuvite F7 and S to polish it but I have no idea how much Nuvite I would need to buy? Would half a pound of each be enough? or do I need a pound of each? Or More? Thanks for your suggestions!

Rod

Humm...

I'm thinking it took me 2 lbs of F7, and a pound of C and S to get my 23' resonably done.

When I did my 18' Traveler - I got one jar of each - think its a pound? - about $45 each. That was more than enough - which is ok because you want to keep a little extra for touch up here and there.

Rod,
A pound of each should do you nicely..Just remember, don't get carried away in using too much at a time..Actually, abt 4 dabs (half the size of a MM) will do for each section...
Good luck~!
