Do I have clearcoat?
I've been reading up in preparation for attempting to polish my Airstream a bit. It's a '73 and while the port side is in decent shape, the starboard is looking pretty rough with white and sometimes dark splotches all over it. A previous owner also sprayed some type of spray paint/sealer on top which is another issue altogether.
I've read that if your aluminum looks "sunburnt" with lighter or darker splotches it still has clearcoat, and that this must be removed if I want to polish it.
That said and taking a look at the pictures, do you think I have clearcoat still on it? Will removing it one section at a time while we polish small sections present any problems?
Any other advice?
My family and I have been full-timing via various modes of travel since 2008. Going on two years in our '76 Sovereign.
