This one car had some pin stripe on it from the factory, I am curious what would be a good quality pin stripe to put back on?


I don't need to match it since it is all getting done.

It depends on how picky you are about the stripes. The most accepted way of striping new cars is by using striping tape. You can buy tape in just about any width and color and it's fairly easy to apply once you know a few basic steps. If you want painted stripes I'd recommend you take it to a good striper that can brush the stripes on because spraying them usually doesn't give as good a result as the brush.

Wide stripes are usually accomplished the same way as two tone painting. You usually apply your stripe color then sand, mask them off and spray your car color then unmask and clear the entire job.

I was just referring to the stick on crap, didn't know that the stuff at autozone and places like that was worth the money. I'll hit them up.
