Depends on what you want??

I would say, it depends on what you want. I had a 1966 Safari polished this past spring by P&S. They did a great job. I found they take it to a point, but not the "mirror" finish. But, they have the most "consistent" finish. You will find "NO" area's that have a slightly different look. When you try to go to the "mirror" look, most of the time you, may have areas that have a slightly different look or almost feel. I had someone that also polishes trailers look at mine after the job was finished. He ask "How did they get it to be so consistent?" I called Steve and asked, he told me "It's 25 years experience". I would say the P&S job would look more like it did from the factory than the mirror look. I think some people do to Airstreams like some people do to old cars, they "over" restore them. I've see better paint jobs on some cars than the factory ever could have done.

Here are a few before and after shots. P and S did a great job with the polishing and clear coat. They also repaired rivets under the belly pan as needed and painted it as well as the tongue/hitch bars & chains. They also put on Zip Dee awnings on both sides (length of trailer) and back window. They also put on ss rock guards and stone guards for the windows. Looks like a different trailer - what do you think?

I will try to post more pictures on the photo page.

P & S in Ohio has polished Airstreams for many years.

Without a doubt, they do a non-pareil job, over anyone in the country.

They have reasonable prices as well.

Andy,
Indeed, I was very impressed with their work and professionalism. I would take my trailer back to them in a heart beat if I needed to.

I had mine done here localy and I was very happy with the results (even thou I had to go over some areas myself). It was very inexpensive two years ago,, I think I paid somewhere in the nighborhood of $600.00 to $700.00 if my memory serves me right but my trailer DID NOT have clearcoat and it's only an 18ft trailer.
I was asked by a forum member for his name, as they were going on atrip that would bring them thru here,, and they wanted to get their trailer polished. Long story short,, this poisher did them wrong and I would never recomend him again.
