Here's some more photos and I'm putting together a blog to track the progress
Dream of an Airstream

In the first photo I hoping to capture the blotchiness in the lower segment, the rest is the baking soda. I'm hoping that I can get to a less blotchy finish by prepping it with the baking soda. To be honest, I like the satin look of the baking soda, but don't think I could work the troubled areas and keep the all over satin finish. I'll get back to polishing in the spring, just wanted to get it pretty enough to bring home and not have my snotty neighbors complain about it.

It's difficult to get a true read in an image with the airstreams, they always look so much better in photos.
