Pin Striping
« on: 22.10. 2012 22:26 »
G'day Everyone,
Thought this may be of interest to all you trainee
pin stripers, this is how it's done.
I've got 30 years experience as a signwriter, but
this is ridiculous!

Not the sort of job to do on a Monday morning after a big weekend.

To be honest a fair few years ago now I saw a documentary on the Meridan factory and there was an english guy there doing exactly the same with a tank. Very impressive

Yep I'm with you bikerboy, I thought straight away that somebody  did that many years ago in Birmingham, difficult to find sign writers up here anyway, nowadays they use ready made stick on lines, I have a roll of gold stuff in my shed

Gary the chap Who painted My "Flash" badges recently is prepared to offer pinstriping .
He quoted Me around £40- £50 to line the tank on My "Shooting Star" when I am ready ..did a lovely job of the badges .
He is a practising signwriter & has also worked on canal barges & the like .

Im not touting for Him by the way as I only made contact with Him recently through a Google search for a signwriter to paint My badges but He is a decent sort .
