Pin striping on a '73 Overlander

Has anyone ever found were to get original blue pin striping for a 73 overlander? I'm about to give up looking,thought about trying to paint it back on it's the only thing I can come up with. Also it's not the blue insert it's pin striping material. Any help would be appreciated!

CHECK EBAY. I striped three of our Airstreams with marine grade stripes I found there. You might get that color or very close. I chose to use my own color scheme and match the awning to it. Here are a couple..

I masked and painted the stripes with rustoleum royal blue. It came out well.

If you go to a sign shop, they can cut the stripes for you. The closest blue I have found is called Traffic Blue. Hope this helps.

I used vinyl striping. I have bought large rolls for under 20 bucks. Had enough to do two trailers with the same stripe off one roll.

Have you looked at either Inland RV or Out of Doors Mart web site for the striping you need or can change? I had all of the original 1 to 1 1/4 done on our 72 International and am going to recover the 7.5 inch stripes that are on the propane cover in front. Don't know if it helps as i am looking for two of the International Emblems for both roadside and curbside to replace on our 41 yo coach. Guess this stuff eventually wears out with use.
