Bright orange foam "pool noodles" to cover the awning struts. Easier to see and softer on the head.

Good idea. Need a bright orange noodle for the corner of the vent hood, also. I have cracked my head twice on it in 2 days!

2 vinyl graphics of our name, the Honys, one on the propane cover, one on the door. Those rivets sure made it easy to center the signs.

Flying Cloud Tire Cover

We found a nice used grey tire cover at a yard sale for $5. We painted a design to describe our 1958 Airstream.

It's more than likely an outdoor vinyl. It would be like a window decal but can be put on any flat area. I made some decals for our center hubs.

The adhesive is on the back of the letters. From the sign shop to where they will be installed there is a wax paper backing on both sides (they laid around the house on a shelf for 6 months). You peel the paper off the back, set them in place, squeegee them flat to remove air bubbles, then pull the paper off the top. The rivets help to get them level and square.
