I’m not a professional painter nor have I ever done pinstripes. So, that’s the reason I’ve done all the paint work myself so I can learn how to do it. Here are two write-ups on how I painted the pinstripes and the side covers.
I had some “adventures” along the way when I tried painting the pinstripes. I did use a pinstripe brush but opted for “training wheels” and used a pinstripe stencil tape so all I had to do was paint between the lines. I have a new found respect for the fine art of painting free hand pinstripes.
I also painted the horizontal stripes on the chrome side covers. I tried the Monza Blue paint from Glausrit but I didn’t like how that looked. So, I tried some Dupli-Color rattle can paint and they look better. I may try to paint the side covers yet again as I’m not sure to best handle the curved edges. But they look pretty nice.
Here are a couple of pictures from the write-ups.
