Damon,

Why don't you try 3M or an autobody supply house? 3M likely supplied the original stripe to Ford back in the 90's.

I found this: check the link.

I got a kit from the guy that used to make it for us aftermarket.

The blue is darker than stock. Stock blue is almost purple baby blue after it fades.

Looks to be 'Cobalt Blue', if you can find someone to hand stripe it...

My 35th doesn't have those stripes and I like it that way :)

Testors model paint military colbalt blue #2011. Thats a perfect match. Found that on the 35th anny registration site before the site closed. Most good hobby shops carry it.

Testor's 4612 Cobalt Blue seems to be acrylic...

The stuff I have is the little square bottles. I saw some at a large hobby shop last summer. Had mine fore about 2 yrs. I think the acrylic paint is from a different line of testors.

You mean back when they used to allow lead in it? :)

Looks like 2012 is Testor's Cobalt Blue enamel now: http://www.testors.com/product/0/2012/_/Cobalt_Blue_%28F%29_MM_-_12_oz._Bottle
