We study the exterior vacuum problem for first and second order stationary and axially symmetric perturbations of static bodies. The boundary conditions and their compatibility for the existence of an asymptotically flat exterior solution are discussed. Some ideas on how these results could be applied for the full, non-linear, problem will be mentioned.
