I didn't know if certain years had a different clear finish or if some had a matte finish to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The '66 - '68 Airstream coaches can and have been polished to a mirror finish by a number of owners. A member (and Past-President) of our Wisconsin Unit has a '68 Soveriegn that he has mirror polished. The coach is pictured below at the 2001 VAC Rally in Viroqua, WI:
You might try posting a quiestion for Ed Emmerick on the VAC discussion list, he may be able to give you a few hints about the techniques that he used with his coach.
Good luck with your project!
