Petrol Tank Lining (Pin Stripe)
« on: 15.07. 2010 18:10 »
Can anyone tell me the thickness of the lines on the petrol tank of a 1955 Plunger Flash. The style with 2 chrome side panels rather than chrome all over. The thicker line goes over the chrome/paint interface and the thinner line is on the paint but how thick are they?

Do you mean width of the striping? If so, it's between 1/8 and 5/32 inch; the variation is because coach-lining was probably applied by hand at the works.
