As a new Airstreamer, I have several questions regarding stripping, rivets, and leaking. When originally manufactured, how well do the rivets seal to prevent water leakage? Does the clearcoat impart any seal? If one removes the clearcoat to polish, do you open your unit up to leaks? For those who have stripped the clearcoat, do you think you have any more leaks? After polishing should I put something on each rivet? Any help before I jump into this project would be appreciated. Thanks!
