if you're looking at the front of the trailer on either side of the tongue are 2 small "banana-ish" pieces that butt into the tongue and wrap underneath to the belly. One was badly dented by the po and I attempted to bang it out... it's just UGLY.
It seems these are seen as opposed to the rear banana so I'm wondering if they're made of the polishing type (I forget the number at the moment) and NOT the belly type?
The banana wraps are available as a replacement part, made from fiberglass.
You might want to call an Airstream Parts supplier for availability and price.
The pieces sit on top of the skin, and are secured with pop rivets under the lower rub molding.
Transistion years had them on the front only, later models had them both front and rear.
All aluminum can be polished. It is a matter of how much effort you want to put into it. It might not give the same shine as AlClad, though.
