Ditto the others...we just stated our "78" Ambassador, know what you mean about the work! So go enjoy it now! And be ready to take many questions from non-airstream campers when you are out and about. It will act like a big silver magnet!

Too Hot

I used the Nuvite system compounding with C, then F7, then cycloing with F7 then S. Anything in particular you want to know...just ask.

That was my problem, 99 degrees and I was trying to polish, Cyclo was getting too hot. Gives me a good reason to put it off till fall!

What pads did you use with the cyclo, Foam pads on the heads then t-shirts or did you buy the special bonnets?

Polish

Great Job! It seemed like it took me forever to polish our 22'. Can't imagine the effort to do a 29' like yours. Again outstanding job!....Tim

Matt, It's funny you would say that. I am originally from Carmichael and was planning on staying at Granite Bayfor a week when I visit my folks. However, I have been forced to retire from polishing by my boss (wife). I can, however, supervise?

As a Non-Vintage Person

may I ask?

Are you planning to polish those nice aluminum propane tanks?
(the devil made me ask!)

It's just one more day sweating in the sun!

Paula, The heat index was 115 today so we decided to do the tanks on a lake somewhere north as soon as we get bored of fishing, bbqing and taking pictures of nature. That means they might stay as is for a while. However, after seeing the transition from plain tanks to plain jerry can holders with stainless jerry cans to the shiny trailer, I convinced myself that it looks good as is (I am soooo tired of polishing)
