Un-Painting an Airstream
Has anyone ever brought a painted AS back to aluminum by going through the process of stripping and polishing before?
I have been talking with a dealer about a 360 motorhome which lost its clearcoat and was repainted in an aluminum paint rather than recoated (apparently based on Airstream's recommendation). The dealer says no bondo was used and it was prepared by wet sanding with 150 grit paper, then painted, then clearcoated.
This unit is at a good price but I don't know what would be involved in brining it back to the original skin and possibly polishing. I've attached a photo to the post.
We seem to be getting closer to actually purchasing one (instead of looking at zillions of them) and have begun to settle in on the 360. (which is funny because we started out looking at older 280's!)
If this one is "restorable" I think I'll make an offer, but I've come to trust the forum to keep me from making bad decisions about a purchase.
Any advice is appreciated!
