So this is our first airstream a 68 sovereign
and have been doing alot to it in the last year. Replaced sub floor,new wiring completely redid inside(70%done) new axles and cut rusted frame and welded in new. So here's my dilemma I told my wife I would get the outside polished for her Christmas gift. I know I'm looking at 200hours but now thinking more like 400hrs with the amount of oxidation. I've got 7" buffer and started with nuvite F7. That didn't do anything at all so went to brown bar compound and that's helping but this oxidation has to be the worst anyone has seen. I'm almost to the point of wet sanding but am looking for any tips and yes I have read everything ever written about polishing airstream and I think that I may have severe filliform. Here are some pics and Ive done 4 treatments of stripping the clear coat using homedepot stripper the spray and brush on and two treatments of the airplane spray stripper.
The next two pics are after about 12 hours with the buffing compound
This is with just the nuvite
Thanks for any input and feel free to tell me I'm insane for thinking I can do this lol.
