Polishing in Central Texas area

Just got our 74 Overlander done, I finally threw in the towel after trying some areas myself and not getting desired results. We wanted to give a shout out to Scott and Ricardo at Austin Metal Polishing. They did a wonderful job and are located south of Austin (512) 799-1751, if anyone is near that area, though they can come to you. They use some pretty nice polishing equipment and various grades of rouge, took about ten days. Very pleased with results.

Attached are some before and after pics.

Thanks for the kind words. I called references and they had only nice things to say and raved about the quality. He charges the standard $100 to $150 per linear foot of trailer, depending on what condition the surface is in, that is, whether there are a lot of scratches to sand out, also its location, whether the clear coat has been adequately stripped already or not, and other factors. Call him and he will give you a quote, I think he will treat you fairly.
