Back at it. Really struggled to get a game plan together. I was hopping I could just wheel it out, but alas it was not to be. Even the most aggressive 3M compund will not remove the oxidation.
Plan "B" was to wetsand, then wheel.
Started out with 2000 grit, kept dropping to croaser grits until I got down to 800
! That is what it's going to take to get any kind of shine back into it.
The nose, "entry door" side and rear door (done) will all have to be wetsanded with 800 / wheeled out / then buffed & waxed.
The "utility" side of the rig can be restored with just a aggressive wheel / buff / wax.
All of the stripes and decals are now off of it. The metal "chrome" stripes were a special kind of challenge, ended up with a heat gun and putty knife process to get them all off.
Next is use an eraser wheel to get any remaining adhesive residue off. then wetsand.
Here is a picture of the test area on the rear door;
Tools being used;
I was looking under it and noticed my water tank has a buldge in it, should I be concerned about this? it does not appear to be leaking;
I assume this is the drain valve? But I could not get any water out of it;
Sorry for the poor pictures.
