You can get blue paint pens from the craft section of walmart that matches almost perfectly, no masking required, simply "color" the indented or recessed area of the letters.I have done plenty of them, looks brand new.

we used Rustoleum "Sail Blue" and it is a perfect 100% match to our blue beltline.

We took a piece of the 1" trimline in blue to Sherman Williams automotive paint shop and they color matched us a quart. It is a perfect match to the trimline and we used it for the lettering, hubcaps and extras. Not sure if your blue is the same as ours. I am sure I have the RGB mix on the can if you want it (it is at home and I am not there currently).

Just a tip, as I was viewing this thread. I have a '85 Sovereign, and I removed the front and rear LOGO "Airstream" by drilling out the rivets and I intend on painting them and returning them to their place with rivets again. Great info on the color. I will take my LOGO to Lowe's and see the match.

Smiley has the right idea. I bought the Elmers blue craft pen and it is an exact match with the new rub rails I just had installed by Inland. I put 3 coats on the letters, did all the rub rail fasteners and trimmed my 2 battery boxes and I still have paint left. This is the easy way to go!

Wink How about Colts Blue?

A nice new blue trim will be just right for tailgating downtown on Sundays this fall.

2 questions

On a 1973 TW AS was the whole letters front and back painted blue, then the outline edge shined/almn, OR just the inside of the letter blue, edge and sides almn. Was the beltline/rub rail painted or sticker? MPJ

blue band around the trailer

I understand that there is supposed to be blue tape but since I don't know about that yet and want something in the meantime, I painted the band, rivet heads and all, and then sanded the molding that was oxidized anyhow so we could be sloppy with the paint. I did the tail-light casting and the big letters also. The letters were oxidized so I sanded across the blue sloppy paint but need to sand deeper to get past all the pits. I am tempted to use my belt sander but Lord help me if I slip! Here are shots of the band Index of /airstream/101010_Blue_line --Mike Diggles in Oakland, Calif.

I used Sail Blue Rustoleum spray paint for my stripes. Lots of masking with blue painters tape. I like how it turned out.
