Years of shining streams

What is the last year of Airstream that would polish to the mirror finish?
I have a "69 Globetrotter and don't know if it will shine out like the older ones.

Any year will polish up. you have to use certain methods and polishing compounds to achieve a mirror finish.
There are several threads on this

I believe a '69 can be brought to a mirror shine.
Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

I've seen new ones polished - so 69 will look great too.

My '72 shined up fine, so should yours. Good luck.

On that note, what is the best way to strip the clear coat on my 72 Trade Wind so I can polish to that mirror finish. Any products anyone can recommend?Garth & Joanne
