Well, I finally got around to doing the one thing that South Jersey RV didn't do, when they redid our Sovereign
, which I was a bit PO'd about, considering the money I spent on the refurbishing...I won't even call it a restoration, because restoration implies that everything is back to like-new condition.
I was bored, and the emblems were looking bad, so I took some 400 grit sandpaper and sanded the side emblems to metal, being careful not mess up the chrome. When everything was smooth, I primered the whole emblem and let it dry. Then I painted the whole emblem white and let it dry. Then I masked everything off, except the red part and painted that red and let it dry. Then I masked everything off, except the blue part and painted that blue and let it dry. Then I took off all the masking and scraped off the lettering with my fingernail, to expose the chroming. Judge the results for yourself.
I also did the emblem by the door. It needs a tiny bit of touch up, and I need to figure out how to get the blue inside the lettering. Any suggestions are appreciated.....the automotive touch up brush is too big.
While I was at it, I took automotive touch up paint and did the rear "International" lettering. The only reason I knew that the outside border was even blue was because I found a small spec of blue in the capital "I".
I know the blue is not "Airstream Blue", but the blue I found looks nice.
All comments are welcome.
