exterior lettering

The Airsteam letters and the International emblems are heavily corroded and need to be replaced. Any body know where I might find them?

Can't you clean them up with a little aluminum polishing paste and then add new blue paint where originally painted? Or are they corroded to the point of falling apart? You might have to keep an eye peeled on the classifieds section to find replacements, or an RV salvage yard like Colaw:

Once my nameplates were removed I spray painted them entirely with a blue automotive paint that was to match the new stripe decal they would be placed upon.
After they were dry I used an electric sander over the tops of the letters which removed the paint on the raised parts of the letters. My third step was to clear coat them and voila!Click image for larger version
