hey Robin, The dog is OK, but you gotta watch that guy that drives that Ford P/U.. If it wasn't for the dog, they would not let him in anywhere!

Yes, many Airstreams have passed through Melody Ranch (and such a bee-eu-tee-ful place Melody Ranch is!!), and all leave much better looking than when they arrive. I'm already having a hard time waiting for the shine to come thru the many years of neglect.

Mr. Woodie - Sadly, I have to admit you are probably right :-). But it isn't very polite to say so in such a public environment.

Sid~ Have to admit, I am excited to see her all polished up, all newly reflecting sunlight and glaring in somebody's eyes as I drive the highways. Hope all is well with you & the devine Ms. B.

Spent the entire day running her thru the natural wash. I hope to start tomorrow AM. She sure is pretty.

WOW! That is too hot for this old boy. Are you using Nuvite products or rouge and wheel? Good luck!

day one afternoon

And it is warming up now.

This is the compound phase done with high speed grinder and Jetsco yellow wheel with green rouge bar. (Green rouge?) The green bar is blended up with mineral spirits and a plastic squeeze bottle as applicator to the surface. With this heat on aluminum surface it is interesting.

Day two middle of the day

We started this day with the weather radio going off with a severe thunderstorm warning. I got up and ready to move Jims' baby into the hay barn....but, it turned out to be just a benign rain and wind event. Work started at about 1030.
