My business, Time Tested Restorations, is a mobile polishing and restoration service that only works "on-site" at or near your location. I travel full-time all over America in my own 1966 Airstream GlobeTrotter, working exclusively on Airstreams. I hope you enjoy my site and take a moment to drop me a line should you have any questions. 

Address Note: Time Tested Restorations has no "fixed" address as I literally travel cross country from driveway to driveway.


I annually attend Alumapalooza in Jackson Center, Ohio where I give seminars on polishing and solar installations. Drop on by and say Hello.

UPDATE: May 2020

Alumapalooza 11 has moved to Sep. 8-13, 2020

I typically spend my winters in the deep south, FL and TX and my summers in more northern states.

My summer job openings are fairly booked thru 2021, but I can sometimes squeeze smaller jobs in around my travels and flexible schedule.

My winter 2020 is currently open(ish) and filling fast.
