The weather is cooperating again. I have managed to get the roof, front and driver side completed with the One-Step. Has already made a drastic improvement. I worried that it would be difficult to keep it from looking "blotchy" from possibly rubbing one area more than the next, since you must do it in small sections. This does not seem to be much of an issue as long as you overlap a bit and pay attention to how much rubbing you do in each section. Actually, since the pads move much easier over the sections once the oxidation is removed, it is fairly easy to judge when a section is finished just by feel. After that a very brief and light
polishing with a clean , dry micro fiber cloth brings out a substantial shine. I imagine this will be quite a bit better still once I apply the Meguiars Wax.
Driver side and the roof took quite some time since somehow they had gotten sprayed by some type of very sticky substance. I assume tree sap, but not sure where it's from since there are no trees covering my driveway and it was there prior to me taking it camping this summer. I ended up removing most of it with denatured alcohol. Was worried how the alcohol would affect the finish, but it appears it only removed the sap and any waxes that were still on the trailer. Immediately after use the area was much more dull than the surrounding sections, but as soon as the One Step was applied and polished, the shine came back and was indistinguishable from the surrounding sections. This was time consuming, but easier than trying to rub the sap off with the One Step. Time will tell if it remains as shiny.
Will finish up the One Step today after a brief break, will probably wait until tomorrow to do the Mequiars. I'm not normally a wax and polish kind of guy for my vehicles, but this trailer needed some tlc.
Once this is completed, I will have to replace a number of the snap caps that didn't survive the Royobi.
A lot of the fasteners used on this trailer appear to be screws/bolts instead of all rivets. None are leaking though, so I will just be using some type of adhesive caulk to affix new ones. I know, no Silicone, any suggestions as to brand and type of caulk?
