Smile Super Simple Polish Method

I was talking to a friend of mine about needing to polish my AS.

He said to simply spread the polishing compound all over the trailer, then tow it through the automated car wash at the gas station. With all the different brushes running it should be nicely polished after two or three cycles.

Anyone try this

Oh Lord, I bet your friend doesn't own an Airstream. I remember the crease that a brush car wash put on my Oldsmobile one time. I can't imagine a brush wash handling a trailer just on size alone. This is not a solution.

Wow, having polished a couple of trailers - I know its not that easy. I know what it took my DeWalt to hammer out three grades of polish.

I've yet to find a method that did not take time and patience.
