Here is the progress I've made so far using a wonderful product from Vintage Trailer Supply called Nuvite polishing compound.
Can't imagine what someone would charge to do it. I also found a nifty trick.
If you use Never Dull wadding polish ($4.87 )first and get the majority of the black off, then use your nuvite, you can get by alot cheaper with the same result.
Here is the link I used, free ship too! http://www.amazon.com/Eagle-One-1035605-Nevr-Dull-Wadding/dp/B000CNBI1A/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1375412956&sr=8-12&keywords=aluminum+polish

I am in need of a cute sink in my 1963 Shasta Camper. For glamping , I feel the pressure of steppng it up to keep up with all the adorable little campers these girls are putting together. Here is what I came up with. A repurposed/ recycled bowl I had from a previous pitcher and bowl stand.
I ordered a diamond bit drill blade from Amazon, as they were much cheaper than our local hardware store.
The drain thingy I got from ebay...
And here it is all drilled and done...Note : you must spray water on the drill bit as it is cutting in order to keep the ceramic or glass you are cutting cool and avoid breakage.
Here is the Lavabo that will hang on the wall for the water faucet.

My 1963 Shasta was missing one of her side windows due to the previous owner having a window air conditioner in it. I have been looking high and low for a replacement to no avail ....yet. This afternoon I dug through all my miscellaneous boxes and came up with this for now. I have to admit... kinda love it!
It's made with a scrap piece of wood that I painted silver, then attached a mirror and a floor grate to it.
