RE: painting my barn

DS's barn has Z-bar channels but I'm not sure if that's what you're trying to replace.
A photo would help, but the link below may list what you're looking for.

I would call some of your local pole barn builders and ask them for the name of a sheet metal/siding supplier. If the supplier sells only wholesale, the builder should be able to order what you need.
Another option is to take a sample of your strip to a metal fabricator and have it made, but you should be able to find the strip and the color you want in stock.

Here is a link that might be useful: z bars, etc.

RE: painting my barn

My barn has strips of wood that cover the gap. Easy to replace and paint the same as the barn. Or a contrasting color.
