Like I stated previously, I predict vendors will sell pre-cut kits at affordable prices for the DIY crowd. Just pick your pattern online and FedEx/UPS will drop off at your door in just a few days.
I was playing around awhile back with a cyber eagle design. After seeing your avatar I thought you might like it.I will probably wrap a portion of the CT to customize it specifically for me.
Besides, when it’s next to 5-10 others in a parking lot I will know which one is mine.
Would the polish look be permanent? Or do you have to redo periodically?Polishing an Airstream would be more work than the CT.
3mm stainless steel wont warp much, if at all, while cutting and polishing, unlike the Airstream.
I'd sand with 400 grit, then again with 600, then "cut & color" with Airway pads, rouge, and a 6000 rpm variable speed buffer. I'll bet a pro could do the CT in 40 to 50 hours.

Good point! Stainless steel is widely used in energy efficient roofs because of its high solar reflectivity ratings. The high reflectivity might offset the absorption from the giant windshield and dash haha.It certainly would make it cooler on a hot day.
Polishing stainless steel to a mirror like finish takes some effort, even more so than aluminum because it's a harder metal. A small Airstream travel trailer will take roughly 200 hours of labor. Anyone plan on going this route instead of a custom wrap?
Looks like someone spent some time on the display model at the museum, caught a few swirl marks on the front. Ditto on the Stainless Steel Brinell scale hence it does not buff very well.
