I'm curious as to what colour you ended up choosing? I'd love to see an orange Airstream!!

We're still obsessing about the color..... it has to be light - we live in a sunny place. we like both the idea of the Cadillac Pearl white and the light "ode to creamsicle" w/ clear coat...

My 2Cents...

I do like the Cremecycle idea.... I also was thinking a while ago how cool a Copper color would be (like on the PT Cruiser convertible or Mazda 3)

OR fun like a zebra! OR big bright flowers (sorry Gary!)
Can't wait to hear what you decide.

Do you remember the Black Bart photos of his Argosy after repainting? Even though just "cream," it was so classy I've never forgotten it. If we ever find the little Argosy I'd like, I'm doing that one. Do a search-bet you can find it again. ~G

I don't know why this looks so pretty to me, maybe because it had just been redone. A perfect little oval egg Janet, it's not very original, but me thinks you could just go with this creme. Maybe add a little pearl for "fancy." Thanks, Terry, for the photo find. ~G

Talking of coloring A/S. I found a source (forgot who!) that sells a paint that comes out identical to high gloss shiny chrome. Can one use this kind of paint instead of mirror shine? Which one would last longer as far as the shine goes.. chrome paint job or aluminum mirror finish polish? I know after mirror polish a clear coat or two would prolong the shine but would it outlast an automotive metalic (chrome) paint that looks far shinier than mirro polish? Any thoughts? Thanks
