Could anyone recommend me a place that does custom painting for air streams? I have a 1975 airstream and the exterior discoloration is rather unattractive. I am looking to have it painted a fun, solid color. I live in Mississippi so I doubt there is a place around here. I am willing to drive! Many thanks
If your desire is for a single, solid color or even a two-tone comination, you should be able to find a paint shop specializing in over-the-road trucks that could accommodate your project. Since many of the semi-trailers are constructed of aluminum they will be familiar with the necessary care to be taken in preparations, primers, and top coats.
I might suggest, that if you haven't considered the possibility would be to have your coach refinished to its original lustre. P and S Trailer Service
in Helena, Ohio has specialized in polishing and Plasticoating the exteriors of Airstreams for several decades and they would definitely be able to return your coach to its near original exterior appearance. They refinished my Overlander about eight years ago and it still looks wonderful today . . . not a mirror shine, but that wasn't what I wanted . . . I wanted the original lustre that I remembered from when the coach was brought home new by friends of my family. I understand that they also do wonderful work with mirror sheen polishing as well.
Good luck with your investigation!
