P&S Trailer Service is one place that I know can do it, but be prepared for sticker shock. IIRC it was going to cost over $7,000 for my 1975 31'. I decided to stay with APB (Airstream Pattern Baldness) for the time being.

I choose blind the lld mirror shine and let them wear sunglasses which is a personal preference.

New members in Lancs: you would be better off investing how to shine the surface. It can be done in from just a mild shine to high-gloss mirror, depending on equipment and energy available.

Many threads here to read about polishing...
