Desired: 4' of 3/4" blue trim

Our '71 Safari has a smoked shade on the back window, which is probably not a standard item, but it is there, it is useful, and removing it would require filling in the resulting screw holes, so it stays. At least for now anyways, as there are more important renovations that need our attention, like the fridge and the air conditioner.
It has a 3/4" trim piece ('beltline') across the center that used to be blue, but now it's sun-rot brown. I'd like to replace it, and I am hoping there is a member out there who has an extra 4' to spare - left over from one of those 50' rolls.

Thanks in advance.

What is it for, I am confused.

The AC or Fridge or something else.

I was afraid there would be confusion about this, so I took a picture, but forgot to bring the picture disk to work so I could post it.

I need it for a smoked plexiglas sun shade on the back of my Safari over the bathroom window. The shade has a vinyl trim piece that used to be blue, but has turned brown from exposure to the sun. I need a 4' long 3/4" strip of blue vinyl and I hope that someone with a 1974 to 1977 model might have some laying around from a recent renovation. My tralier is pre-vinyl, so I won't ever need a 50 ft roll.

I will try to remember the disk tomorrow so I can post a picture.

vinyl sticker???

Would vinyl sticker material (like a bumper sticker is made of work)? You might be able to pick up a scrap from a local sign shop (Fastsigns) in almost any color...if they make you pay for it cut to a custom size...3/4" X 48", it should be less than $10.00. If this is not the type of product, sorry.

Here's the shade:

Here's a detail. As you can see, it once was blue, but now is brownish. (Odd how the camera autofocused on the reflection instead of the trim piece )


Thanks for your patience everybody. I measured the width of the strip and it is 3/4"

Interesting, this is the first smoked window covering I have ever seen on the rear window of an Airstream.

It doesn't look all that bad unless you look closely, and notice that it isn't proportional to the window. It does protect the pull-down blind from UV exposure though, and that is important out here in the desert. That, and removing it would leave a bunch of screw holes that would need to be filled, so it stays for awhile yet anyway.
