Caravelle red/orange stripes

There are a couple of tears in the red/orange stripes and they are terribly faded. Any ideas where to find replacements? Also looking for the orange bottom and belt line trim if anyone knows where to find them.

Custom decal shop should be able to make you the stripes.

I went to ebay and bought vinyl tape for our trailer. Looks pretty good. For the tape in the small guide I used red and blue vinly tape from autoparts store.

I actually used McGuire's cleaner/polish on the vinyl stripes and gently buffed years of oxidation away. The auto parts store had a red tape which matched well enough to make a patch for the torn areas. I'll get by with the original stripes for a bit longer.
