Our new ARSTREA

Yes I know how to spell it, but the IM is in the top kitchen drawer of our new 94 Sovereign. What's the best stuff to use to make it an AIRSTREAM once again?

We had new lettering ordered and put in place for us. (Our cover which seemed so useful actually tore up the letters from wind. )

I would use a bead of sealant, NOT SILICONE we used to use silicone to stick styrofoam letters to the front of buildings and they withstood some severe storms.

FWIW as far as I know they are attached with a pin through the metal with a cap fastener of some sort on the rear. Did your pins break off? If so you have holes.

I believe AS has replacement stick ons in most fonts and colors at the AS Store.

On yours, yes they are fastened from the back. On that one, they are stick on.

If anyone knows where I can buy the new stick on letters let me know, would probably look better than poking the old ones back up.
