I have seen the '89-29' and can attest to its shine. Our '66 Overlander has had male baldness for many years before we owned it. It was at the grey corrosion point, so using White Diamond polish was a two coat ( minimum ) job. Like Rob, I am not really ready or want a highly polished trailer, but the polished areas above the clear coat now has more shine that the clear coat areas! I will do the citrastrip eventually, but since it is all protected again, I am not in a hurry for that job.

If you have a rock guard over the front window mask it off or remove it because the stripper will eat into it. I had to replace mine after using stripper

There are two solutions.

The first is the expensive one.

Refinish.

The second one is by far the cheapest one.

Wear dark sunglasses, in fact "very dark" sun glasses.

What you can't see, will never bother you.

Kayakampers, so you just used the polish on the faded section?? That would be a great temporary fix! Then we can do the "big" job next fall! Did you do it by hand or with a buffer? Also, where did you purchase the polish?

I LOVE THIS FORUM!
