Do you have any suggestions on where to find airstream parts?

I did the paint stripe along the belt line filiform corrosion. I knew that I could never match the silver, so went darker gunmetal gray and "sealed" the paint edge with 1/4" vinyl pinstripe. I think that it looks pretty good and didn't cost much at all. Click image for larger version

Yes, I like the look and it is an option. The trim option is not difficult. I had a few areas too that had filiform besides the belt line. One area was the stove vent. The corrosion extended out a ways so I ended up buying a stainless stove vent, some Airstream aluminum and making a squared frame of aluminum to go around the stove vent which I riveted on. The other spot was around the teardrop lights.

Will be a new owner of a 2007 Safari 23 in couple days, if all goes well.
One of the first projects will be installing the beltline trim that I have noticed on the new 2017/8? 23D's, since the trailer has some filiform corrosion in the back along the belt line seam.

I thought about taking it to a dealer for them to do the work, but the price was well above the cost of a major solar install, so I hope to do this myself.

Fellow I spoke with at the dealership was quite helpful and also quoted a rough materials price of $500 and said that the channel was to be riveted on? Has anyone done this?

YES! We had exact same filiform and belt line issue with our then newly acquired 2005 25ft International CCD SS. Got weary of looking at it and decided to do what we could to minimize the "look".

Couldn't find any videos how to do so like a true Airstreamer...did it ourselves. Ha !

Have complete (10min) video of our process and end results. To us, vast improvement on our rig and upgrades the previous look 100%.

Will try and post on YouTube shortly.
