    fairly simple.....very very steady hand. I know some guys who do it for like 150-250 bucks a pop at car shows. I dont know what paint they use...but ive seen the brushes at model car shops.

    The guys at shows just mix whatever color you want, stripe your car in a tent to somewhat avoid dust, and if its not straight, take a towel with a light thinner in it and wipe the line off, start over til its straight/symetrical.

    Pinstriping is fun to learn. I never did a car, but when I was in High School, I practiced on scrap hood and fenders.

    Use One-Shot enamel and try using a 00 Mack brush. 00's are thin. You can trim themn down to be really skinny.

    I did Chinese calligraphy also, so it helped to steady my hand.

    Ed Roth has a good how to book on striping. A newer book called PINSTRIPING MASTERS is pretty good, but it's more of a showcase book that has tips from some really great pinstripers. Pinstriping Graphics by John Hannukaine is really good.

    HERE is a link to some good books.

    HERE is another good link

    And HERE is a great link for supplies.

    much respect to pinstripers and sign painters,
    a lost art, that takes plenty talent and patience.

    I finally bought the book.
    I wasn't able to find the Mack series brushes, so I'll have to order them online.

    Can't wait to try this stuff.

    my dad used to be the shit at pinstriping. I doubt I'd ever have that kind of patience.
