Color of trim mold

On the side of my 1972 31ft International Sovereign, there are aluminum strips. The previous owner had painted them blue is this the correct color? I would like to touch them up, but still haven't found out the correct color. Should it match the airstream logo on the front and back? If so what shade of blue is that? Thanks.

In the 73 vintage I do not think the alumimum moulding was painted, It may have been an enhancement done by the PO. The blue insert started in 74. I do not know hwat the color code is on either, but wanted to let you know that it was not that way originally.

Rustoleum royal blue seems to be the paint of choice for touching up the nameplates. I used it on my former '73 Tradewind tags and it matched fine.
