1970 Blue RubRail, Paint on Badges?

All the color paint on the labels and badges as well as the rubrail have faded right off of our 1970 Caravanner. Best solution to repaint? Any recommendation for product brand to do this?

We used to have a '72 with the same concerns. Paint's your best option on the badges and letters. I've tried tape on the straight sections of beltline trim, but it tends to lift off of the rivet heads if apply it over top of them.

Jenner we went to an auto paint store (Auto Color). These people sell only auto collision supplies. Most communities will have one. I took Airstream blue, red and white to the store and matched the colors by using the stores color charts. The store made the three colors for me in three pints. My wife brushed the paint on after we cleaned the area. We used all different size brushes and sponges.
