I would think that as long as you're not selling them, you should be fine. or course the logos I've done are for defunked manufacturers.

Hi,
I had a lot of replies, but there is not a solution it seems. I need a real source to still at least replace my "Hawaiian Blue" stripes on my 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe. Anyone who has replied, are there any updates?

Thanks!
Dave

I think you could get new stripes, etc. from the type of vinyl/sign place that typically does things like names and graphics for boats.

Stripes are fairly simple strips; for a name you can usually give them a digital file of an image or font you've come up with (I've done that for a boat name).

They have hundreds (thousands?) of colors of the vinyl and you can either get samples or perhaps send in yours to duplicate the color.

It's nice to be able to stop in at the shop, but I think they often work remotely as well (i.e. they send the product and you apply it). Application isn't too difficult, as long as you start with a well-prepped surface and take your time getting things aligned.

Raya

PS: If you Google "boat vinyl graphics" you'll come up with quite a number of them. If you are going remotely, know that places where there are lots of boats will do these all the time, and often they're much more complicated (which is good since they should be able to do the Trill graphics). I've had them done in San Diego, for example.

What I did for all the stripes and names,
was simply tracing them on a carbon(see thru )paper,
then took it all to a print shop,
and they re-created the EXACT same shapes, ect ect ect.

Even thou I completely customized my surfside,
I still wanted the original stripes, logos, ect to be the same.
The only thing I added in the logo, was a nic name.THE HOBO.

A print shop can make either a sticker, or a stencil,=(if you wish to air brush the logos).

Hi Guys

The TRV folks have added replacement decals -Stripes & Logos - to their parts list for Trilliums.
Only in 1300 Orange... but 4500 Blue can't be far away.

Well it took a while to get around to this one.

I ordered stripes from vinylstriping.com they ran off 140 feet of striping for around $60 delivered which will probably do three Trilliums or just enough if you mess up really bad.
The color match for my 4500 was - vivid blue 1018
2" is probably close enough but I ordered 1 7/8" because that is what I measured on mine.
After removing the decals and glue I made guide lines using masking tape using the "ghosts" of the old stripes still visible on the fiberglass.
The tricky part was going around the corners - had to pull hard to get them to conform to the bottom which narrows a bit. I might have had an easier time if I took of the top carrier film before getting to the corners.

The last photo shows new stripes against the old one still on the door.

Chris, do you have any of the stripes left? Even a small sample?

I see the door in the middle photo. Is that the colour match you were able to acheive?

Yes Roy about 50'. I can send you a sample if you like.
And yes it is the middle photo. I matched it to the inside seam of the door (where the sun don't shine)
