Yes, on the tail light castings and also on the skin where I had buffed off Filiform, repainted with a matching silver paint, then re sprayed the Nyalic over that area.
On smaller areas like the entry handle or door hinge, I brush painted the product with a small 1/2 inch artist brush. (Use a small artist touch up brush for resealing of corrosion X treated small corrosion repairs.) (for these small repairs, don't buy the expensive quart liquid, spray a little from the aerosol into its lid for small brush touch up.)
This work was on the newer trailers--Alcoa baked on clear coat from the factory. Nyalic, being a polymer resin, is flexible, so it works on bare AL, painted surfaces, etc. My experience with the product goes back 6 years and it's application on corroded aluminum outriggers on a salt water fishing boat. Those outriggers still fish the Gulf of Mexico and look like they did the day of repair.
If you were to do the entire trailer, you would of course, use the liquid via a professional automotive spray set up. If that's your plan, I would talk to the company, as they have the two Airstreams completely restored with Nyalic.
Skin repair below--Filiform moving up from end cap edge was removed, closely matching silver paint sprayed to cover repair, then Nyalic clear sprayed over that:
