Question Airstream Lettering

I have 94 34' Excella. the lettering on both ends looked pretty bad. I polished the rear section up top where the WBCCI numbers are and while doing that I polished the "AIRSTREAM" lettering also and it cam out looking great.

So today I decided to clean up the front lettering. Not so good! Not long after I started trying to clean them, i noticed they were not stuck on very well. Well, to make along story short, all the front lettering is now in a trash bag.

These letters are individual, thick plastic of some kind, 2" high, blue letters. Underneath the thick plastic (maybe about 1/16" - 3/32" thick) there were vinyl letters stuck on. It's sort of like vinyl applied first and then the thicker ones after.

Does anyone know where I can get new letters? Preferably the thick ones. I know Airstream has some replacements in Jackson Ctr, but does anyone know about mine specifically?

Thanks for any help.

I was thinking of doing the same thing. My letters turned pink. I think they used to be gold. I tell my wife its not pink.. its salmon color.

Post some pictures with the final product.

Pretty sure those are going to be Airstream Factory items... May or not be directly order-able from Airstream.com store.. If not, they'd have to be ordered through a dealer or repair center....

Funny you should mention it, I lost an eye. So I am looking for an eye for an I. Since we now own and A RSTREAM, does anybody know how to make this right?
