How to remove grizzly scratches on my AS?

There just minor scratches by the stove vent. Wolbernizing hasnt helped. Could have been worse if Jackson and the dog had chosen that exact time to go for a little stroll.

Any buffing ideas?

Thanks, BadKat

coarse polish like Nuvite F7, or high grit wet sanding with 1000-2000 grit. A black emery bar might help.
This is all deendant on whether the AIrstream is clear coated, if so you will be scratching off the coating.

I suspect it's not entirely unlike dealing with scratches from some PO. Something I'm dealing with right now. Begin with a good orbital polisher and some F9. Like Alan points out, though, this means removing the clearcoat -- and suddenly the job becomes a lot more complicated.

If those scratches are from a grizzly, though, you might just want to keep them as a momento! So much cooler to tell people about than some less than wonderful previous owner's misadventures!

We call the stone chips on the front of our trailer "adventure" marks - but grizzly scratches? - wow - now that is a whole 'nuther category - don't dare remove them - they are a part of the legacy that needs to stay with this trailer .....
