Airstream trim colors

The trim, and placards on my Overlander have lost much of their color. Reading past posts, Krylon's "Royal Blue" seems to be the group consensus for Airstream blue.

Can anyone recommend a shade for "Airstream red "?

Thanks,
Tom

Yes, I'd heard the same. Alas, it comes only as a messy spray. I chose a brush-on paint, and the hue is different. Too bad, so sad.

Here, a local auto body supplier can and does, mix paint to match. Small batches, large batches, no problem. I can buy a pint, or horror of horrors, have it packaged in a dreaded spray can (Don't ask....)
How about checking one of those places out? I end up with automotive enamel or whatever it's called these days, quality paint by any name.
Just make sure you're dealing with a supplier, not a shop, for the best price.
