The Airstream logos

There's nothing more iconic than the Airstream logo. I've removed mine along with the '290' emblem in order to polish. I've found that if I put my polisher upside down in my bench vice I can lock it in the on position and buff nonstop for hours on these small pieces. The problem is that they don't really shine up well. Using f-7 and C seems to work but since their cast surface is a bit rough it really only gives a matte finish. I know my 290 is rare and it's very retro, but I'm thinking I can take the '290' logo and flip it upside down so it says '062'. I wonder how many people would notice!

Probably many, since the 9 to a 6 is ok, but the "2" would look goofy.
