Doing the big shine job.

Recommended Posts

Desertdawg

Finally got a morning to myself and figured I better get this started before it gets to be summer again. 

Just a quick meguiar’s #66 with the orbital. 

Maybe a little hyperdressing around the edges since I don’t have any 303. 

Got a guy coming to look at it. If it goes I can start saving up for the big retirement mansion on wheels. If not then at least it’s shiny for a little while again. 

 

Left side oxidized. Right side semi-RV quality shiny. 

(I’ll get a better before and after pic tomorrow.

Boats do the same thing.  AZ sun is unforgiving.

More polishing than I have done. Probably needs it once a year but I was slacking. 

You can buy an RV with an automotive finish, clear coat and all. It will hold up just fine. But RV manufactures kind of cheap out on the lower lines. 

My next one within 5 years will be a more expensive model.

Ah! Once you retire you will have all the time in the world to keep it shiny.

^^^ this is a myth. 

 

Once he retires, he will become so busy he will wonder how he ever found time to hold down a full-time job while doing everything else that needs to be done. :smilelol

It’s getting there. Had to run to the store for more elbow grease. 

Still have the other side to second coat if anybody is bored.

Here's an idea, why don't you host an ACE detail day? We'll provide the labor and you provide the food and beverages?
