RFQ: I own a 1986 Airstream Travel Trailer and want to refinish the exterior aluminum shell. It is 'aircraft type aluminum' and was originally finished with an acrylic lacquer which has now worn off. I want to know what material I should use to 'buff' or shine the aluminum after I give it a mild acid bath to remove the acrylic lacquer that is still on the surface. Is there someone you know who does this type of work? The trailer is 34 foot long so there's plenty of surface to shine. Can you help me?

Letter 5613 "Polishing an Airstream Trailer" includes some good suggestions on how to polish them. You may also find letter 11151"Moonshine Aluminum Polish (Very Strong)" interesting and amusing. Good luck.
