    I record with the iPhone, send it to the iPad then edit it. The laptop I have could never edit video. This thing is a pain but it works.

    Yeah, especially because you tape it, use the clear remover, remove tape to clean it, tape it again and polish. I get my tape by the 5 pack at Costco for like $12 bucks so it`s not much of an issue. I like these wide areas to get used to the Rupes 21

    Re: The Art of Detailing, detailing an Airstream!

    Packed up the gear for another day.




    Taped up and ready to strip




    Dead clear removed. I decided instead of polishing, Im going to focus on getting rid of all the clearcoat on this side.



    The stuff doing it`s job. It takes about 2-3 passes to be completely ready.




    This side is completely removed, just before sunset.




    I think tomorrow I`m going to remove all the clear on the other side, front and rear so when I polish I can just polish the whole thing. I ordered a Rupes mini yesterday and some pads. The 21 nor HF won`t go into those small spots. Her husband wants me to polish and detail his truck when I`m done so, it`s already time for another Rupes.

    Re: The Art of Detailing, detailing an Airstream!

    This is the 4th day on the exterior. It`s time to get serious!



    Started on the driverside panel. This one had a lot of clear left so it took 4 passes.

    (This is a screen cap not a video. The iPhone is too dumb to let you screen cap the first pic of a time-lapse)






    aluminum bare and ready.


    Before


    After


    The whole side is almost ready. I have to give some areas more passes before polishing.


    I`m glad she lives like 3 minutes away because I have to go there and back a lot.



    Tomorrow I`ll be finishing up that then back to the main event. POLISHING!

    subbing for end result. Not sure how I feel about polishing bare metal. I can never tell when I`m done and I end up not stopping until its as clear as a mirror. That may be fine for paint, but not always for metal (I wouldn`t want a delorean to look like a mirror for instance)

    Have you decided what LSP you are going to use to protect that monster after you finish polishing? How many pads have you gone through? This is definitely a Rupes torture test. Too bad you couldn`t have gotten a Cyclo and a ton of 4 inch microfiber cutting pads since it is supposed to be the polisher of Airforce One! Keep shining on!

    $800 for exterior, so total of $1,200

    $3-400 would be for a one step, one and a half day job.

    Re: The Art of Detailing, detailing an Airstream!

    Got more progress done today. It got windy but still managed to almost get a whole side done. The front and back don`t have much metal at all. Also I`m half down on PB polish so ordered another and the RUPES detailing belt. Would be really handy right now.
