U2drvr - welcome to VAF!
If you're planning on a polished airplane, now would be a good time to start. You'll learn how to polish, and get used to putting aside a block of time on a regular basis to maintain the shine. Keep in mind while you do it that this is only about 10% of the surface area of the airplane... It will take 10x as long to do the rest of it. Regularly.
