'76 Argosy trim

Hello Argosy fans,
I acquired a lovely 1976 28ft Argosy trailer almost two years ago. I am slowly becoming more familiar with her and spending countless hours on my Argosy (financially anyway) to make her a great place for my two boys to enjoy. I seem to be drawn to making her the best she can be.

I am trying to acquire some of the original belt line and rub rail trim, likely argosy orange would be great. I have seen a few posts on this topic, but I need to confirm the actual size required for the belt line and the rub rails for my trailer. I am sure someone out there has a quick answer. is the belt line 1/2 inch or 1 inch and is the rub rail (lower) 1 1/2 inch? any insigth would be appreciated.

it's all good, managed to track down sizes. if anyone is interested, the belt line is 1/2 inch and the rub rail is 1 inch, both in orange. comes in a 50 ft roll.

Big white- Iam considering an orange rub rail or reflective tape over the existing wood grain belt line (which for me oddly measures closer to an inch than 1/2 inch)

Anyway, what product did you use and where did you find it?

Also, sometime ago there was a thread with an argosy owner who used a prismatic or other type of highly reflective (3M or reflexite?) tape on the mid line rail. Cant find it through search to save my life. Anyone recall or perhaps know what Im talking about
