how to remove out oxidization & more
i'm about to re clearcoat my airstream motorhome and have a couple questions i'm hoping to get feedback on.
the 1st question is: what speed buffer and what product do i use to remove oxidization on the aluminum (i.e. bring it back to the machine finish look without over polishing it)? i have air polishers and electric buffers, but i want to get the technique just right before i commit to all 35 feet.
my 2nd question involves paint and may take me down a more involved path. i have some sections on the roof that have hail pocks and a rear corner panel with a dent from a street sign. i'm wondering how it might look if i decided to paint these few panels silver and go after the rest with plasticote.
the 3rd questions, is where can i buy plasticote? (i've looked locally here in san francisco, but so far haven't had any luck).
fortunately, i saw some other posts that give details on the painting process --but i'm sort of hoping to not paint the whole darn thing at this juncture.
thanks for your help!
