Well here is a thought. The dairy truck in the photo has a curved surface that does not present such a "sun flash" hazard that a flat panel (mirror) would and potentially blind another driver and cause a wreck. Sun flash is pretty strong. In a survival situation out on the water while I worked in the USCG doing searches in the Carribean it was not uncommon to get strong signal mirror flash from 7 miles away and they get your attention real quick.
Airstream trailers are shiny and not round.

Anyone here good enough with photoshop to come up with a polished render?

Seriously considering polishing it to a mirror finish..

Makes me think of all those fancy chrome wrapped cars I see downtown.

I want to polish only the tailgate to a mirror finish. Justice and education for all the high beam tailgaters roaming the streets these days.
I was thinking along those same lines for the tailgate only using white or chevron striped reflective tape (very LARGE format), found a supplier. www.tapedealer.com
