Ganglin's looks like the ticket. Red on top, white to the left and under the logo, blue on the bottom, least that is what it is on mine, albeit newer.

Here's ours

I did ours, but still need to sand the paint off the letters!! I did'nt remove them to paint them, it was fairly easy.

Looks great. What type of paint did you use?

Spray or bottle? Enamel?

Thanks, Silver Threads, so what did you do

for the lettering? Did you spray the area white with the intention of lightly sanding the lettering?

First I taped it all off, then I sprayed the whole thing white. After that dried real good, I then taped everything besides the blue and red area and painted those. After everything dried, I used the little Black and Decker mouse sander and sanded the paint off the letters. Came out pretty good!

Finally got to this small project. I used Rustoleum spray paint and lots of painters tape. On the letters I used a smigin' of vaseline to make paint removal easier.

Cool, glad I could help. Just make sure you use very little vaseline. When I say a "smigin" I mean a smigin'. Use enough for a very thin coat on the very tops of the letters. Otherwise, the vaseline goops on the edge and white spray paint doesn't stick to the sides of the letters.
