Hi there, we own a Trillium 5500 and recently had the belly band replaced which caused a bit of damage to the paint. Could someone advise what paint we should use to touch it up. It is a cream one.

thanks for any suggestions/'help

Dorothy and Ann

Are you sure it's paint and not the original gelcoat? The solution may be the same or may be not... depending on your answer.

thanks for replying Donna, we believe it is the original gelcoat, not absolutely certain, but that is what we think. Thanks for any help.

Any pictures you may have that show the extent of the problem may help in finding a solution.

Dorothy and Ann, I can offer you this post. It's for a 1978 4500 Trillium... but they said it's Ivory. Wonder if that's the same as yours? And, it's a paint match to the gelcoat.

Exterior paint match for 1978 Trillium

On Edit: I found another one: Trillium Jubilee Paint Match

Hope this helps!
