Klaus - I like the blue and it sure makes you unique. You are the only other 250 owner I've come across. I'm sure there are more. I understand they made 15 per year for 3 years.

Well here is the paint on the first windows! Like the color, much better than the flat black a PO had put on!

Hey did U all know that SEARS toolbox grey is a very, very close match to the bottom grey on our classic motorhomes? (My window trim is not grey but some sort of dull black). U can get it or order it as a spray can at the paint department. Last time I bought it was 4 years ago and assume it can still be purchased. I picked this tip up from some airstream club newsletter article, Fred Says or something like that.

Hi All,

I've seen this on the airstream site and thought it would be good to add to this thread. Has complete looking list of all airstream paint colors.

Here is a couple of pic's of that.
Chris, were the pop-rivets installed at the very bottom edge of the channel? If so I can see why it would be make you a little

On the 345 I dismantled the rivets were higher up on the bottom channel so the rivets weren't a problem. However the problem I did find was the rubber hose that connects to the bottom of the drip tube was plugged which meant the water would back up inside the channel and then drip out through the pop-rivet holes!

It would be a good idea to make sure your drip tube is clear and not plugged.
