When they bring them in for a light or heavy check they wash them with a chemical that removes all wax,polish grime, and leaves a heavy chalky oxide. Then the a/c cleaners take a high volume air operated buffing wheel (looks like a 12 inch drum with wool pad and screw on extension poles you can get it about 10th feet long) put polish on it and run it up and down the plane until its a mirror. Inspection is pretty easy with no paint, and it looks awesome. All the painted surfaces have to be sanded down to green primer which takes forever then rolled. the entire plane can be polished in two days 24hrs coverage. total repaint gets done on heavy checks when the aircraft is in for 30 days.
