The guy in the video must be the Tom Sawyer of Airstreams. I wanted to jump in there and say "Here, hold my coffee and let me try that."

I want to go buy a faded old Airstream just so I can polish it like that. Bap, you are one lucky guy...

Lol, he is interesting.

I agree, I caught the bug. I need an ole airstream. Bap has the inside of that one looking way good. Soon the outside will be awesome. Kinda neat that the outside cleans up so nicely. Most other vintage campers the outside would never look this nice when done. Very nice!

Lynne,
That is a good idea, would never have thought of that.
Bap,
When you get done I have some aluminum wheels on the truck that need a good polishing, haha. I will even take them off so you can work on them at a comfortable level.

Thanks bap, we will discuss it whenever we get there to see you guys. Who knows, I might get bored this winter and do it myself. Of course, I still have to see about redoing the stripes on the 5er.

Hey Bap! Amazon has those wheels. Also I have purchased them in Lowes and Home Depot.

Here is a link to amazon.....

JacksonLea 47401SP Sewn Conventional Buff, 30 Ply BR 60/60 Cotton Cloth, 6" Diameter, 1" Arbor Hole: Amazon.com: Home Improvement

I use them on my bench buffer, for small stainless welding projects I have done, brackets for my bikes etc.. They last a long time if you don't catch them on a sharp edge. The are much harder, and will really cut.

As the video said, use a different one for each compound. The compound gets embedded in the wheel.

Looking good Bap!

Sorry about your water leak, yep, stuff happens. Glad you got it fixed.

Wow, you are remote and out in the country. We drive 6 miles to Lowes, 22 miles to Home Depot. We almost moved further out, but then decided we want to be near the kids.

Nice bap, she will look like it just rolled off the assembly line when you get done.
