this sounds like a great idea, the gaucho even in a 31' sov is very small.... would love more detailed input on how you did that !

This is all original. The sink was discolored and faded and had some stains. I was going to airbrush it a matching color, but since I was headed in that direction, I decided to see what happened if I used a rubbing compound on it. My wife found a product that is made for faded fiberglass boats, but I just used a little of the airbrite aluminum polish. It took some elbow grease, but all the oxidized finish came out and it polished up to a great shine.

Nice. We are working on a 1978 Sovereign 31 ft. Keeping much of it original with a few upgrades. Looks like you did a great job. Have fun.

Brmike, my wife says I could quit my job, but have to charge you $100k and be done in about a year.

or

You can buy mine for $45k and pick it up next week if someone doesn't offer me more.



Rob.

Robwok was gracious enough to allow my wife and I to see this Overlander in person this weekend. He and his wife did a spectacular job restoring this Airstream.
