Polishing in Texas?

Can anyone recommend an individual or company who can polish our 1961 Safari in the Houston-Austin area?

Not really a "recommendation", but there is usually an add on the Austin Craigslist for polishing.

Try this: http://austin.craigslist.org/rvs/2164419249.html

Try this: Polish & Remodel Service.
This guy's name is Diego. I've seen his work. He used to work for Eric Stoltz.

I have also seen a flyer at the service counter of Camper Clinic 2 for "Austin Truck Polishing".

Might be worth a trip to Ft.Worth.There are some detailers in Saginaw (outside of Ft.Worth)I have their card at my office.I think it is called Extreme Detail.I stopped by one day for a visit.
I have seen the work and they estimated$700 for a 28ft.Amb.
They use the bar method and do nice work.
Takes a couple of days.(I think they have 12 elves on staff.)

Hmmmm. Might need to drive out to Texas and get my old girl polished for the first time in probably at least 35 years... Maybe longer. With my neck issues, I am thinking I'm going to need big help!

Thanks!

Diego has been recommended to me as well; I haven't actually seen his work. Eric Stolz is a guy in New Braunfels who does maintenance and restores/sells Airstreams.

Eric Stoltz owns Texas Vintage Travel Trailers.

Diego can polish and does an a good job, but I am unaware of his costs. I have also heard of truck/plane polishers in Texas that actually come to you. Met one of them at the TX Vintage Rally last year.

The weather here in St. Louis is wintry mix with sleet and snow right now, and I cannot wait to get down to the family in San Antonio.

As for the St. Louis area, I have never had any of my trailer polished in the area, but I would look into truck or plane polishing.

Austin Metal Polish Call Scott at 512 799-1751. He does a great job, I've seen his work. He'll come to your place. He did the trailer that Miranda Lambert has shown in the Spring "Airstream Life" Magazine.

He normally has an ad in Austin Craigslist, but I haven't seen one from him lately. His old ads are not listed either. You may also want to check these guys out.
