I started polishing my 1948

Wee Wind. I know, it should be the last thing I do after restoration but..... it looked like so much fun .

I really have what I think is a good reason . I was hoping to stop or at least slow down the corrosion process. It's been sitting outside in the Florida sun since at least 1985 with what appears to be no maintenance at all. It will continue to sit outside as it's too tall to go in my garage.

I barely got started when it started to rain
