Plasticote refinishers

Hi: I have a 1993 21í Sovereign where, not surprisingly, the plasticote is failing. Itís bad on the roof and end caps and is now working its way down the sides. Iíve read several threads here about the challenges associated with re-coating plasticote. This is not a project I look to take on myself. Does anyone know of a experienced plasticote refinisher located in the west? I see Dick McIntyre mentioned Here(Oregon), however, I get the feeling he may no longer be doing this work. I am also aware of P&S in Ohio....but they are a long way from British Columbia

Thanks in advanced for any leads!

P&S no longer applies Plastikote. To the best of my knowledge, it is no longer available.

With my previous trailer, a 1986 Sovereign, I stripped the Plastikote where it was failing (end caps and above the window line) and did a very minor polishing job with Meguiarís aluminum polish. It looked a lot better but I had to touch it up annually...

The last I spoke with P&S they were still re-coating. However that was a year ago. Iím not sure if itís With the original airstream mix or their own proprietary mixture. Iíd have them do the job but Ohio is a long haul. Ideally Iíd like to find a west coast refinisher.

Thanks for the info on how you dealt with the failing plasticote. Iíll keep as an option should I not find a shop.
