Post Beugler Pinstriping System

In case anyone is interested, I have the anniversary edition system posted on ebay as Item # 2409048915. I purchased it for well over 400.00 but I'm moving and I need to sell it without even having gotten to try it yet.

On a funny note, I have to get a good laugh out of the graemlins one paddling another because I make sensual spanking implements and sell them!

Hopefully you're not using the beugler's to pinstripe your "sensual spanking items". Some 1-shot colors have lead in them that, if entered into the blood stream in large doses (I don't know what exactly is involved in "sensual spanking", but if it involves blood...) can cause lead poisoning. Just a thought...oh yeah, and your a weirdo!

No, there's no blood involved and nope, I don't use the pinstriper for that, haven't used it at all as a matter of fact.

It was one of Roth's cars back when he was into designing weirdo cars. I think he called it the Light-Beam or something to that effect. The lights in the front of the car were the three lights from an old RGB Movie projector. Roth was the KING of acrylic Bubble-Tops. I am a custom painter/pinstriper and this is the only one in the list of available cars that kind of fit what I do.

Bueglers are half a step better than vinyl tape, and tape is for panzies.

Wow...what a can of worms.

I dont know if you all have seen me on a soap box before, but here you go:

It is true that automotive grade vinyl applied on the exterior of cars should be left to Post 1990 vehicles, and particularly to Honda Civic's and Prelude's. Anything that is, once was, is slightly resembling, using the same platform as, or could be banged with enough bodywork into the shape of a Muscle car or classic car should have paint on it. Airbrushing is for murals, and murals are for 1980 Nissan Widebodys and similar mini-trucks (I am an airbrush artist also...that wasn't against airbrushing in particular).

Street rods, classic cars and muscle cars should be striped with paint. I (and many others) say that pinstripes and grafix should be applied by hand, by an automotive artist, WITH a grey-squirrel hair brush. However, the Beugler system works TERRIFIC for people who don't have the patience to learn to pinstripe, or dont want to hassle with it (there is really more hassle trying to clean out a beugler than a brush, though.....). I pinstripe by hand. I have used Mack "Original" '00' size brushes to pinstripe flames, grafix, and artwork on vehicles, bikes, and panels for a while. Ever since I started pinstriping, I have heard from other stripers that Macks' are the way to go. They are the originals. "Von Dutch" used macks. "Roth" used macks. Hightower, Bond, Bobbo, Magoo, The Italian...they all use Macks. So I have been fighting the Mack pinstripe brushes for nearly a decade to get them to turn in correctly. Couldn't do it. It made me feel like an imbecile, as my peers were doing beautiful peices and making money with them, and I couldnt even pull two curves the same diameter radius. Then, I met a striper who gave me an Xcaliber 000. For some reason, the Xcaliber corp's brushes are SHUNNED by the pinstriping world for being "fancy-new-fangled brushes", but my striping went from passable to notable overnight. I love it! I've orderd $100 worth of Xcaliber's since then to replace all of my Macks, and I have oiled and stored the Macks for museum peices.

The point? Today, vinyl is for wussies. Beuglers are for Wussies who want to "act" like pinstripers. Pinstriping is a dying artform, so beugler's of tomorrow may be the 'kings' of the stripe, and there may be something else that comes along and falls into the 'wussie' status and people may accept putting vinyl grafix down the side of their "old-time" fiberglass, pre-chopped, leather interior'd, prefab-framed, independent-suspension'd, 502 crate Chevy motor'd, 32 Ford 3-window. Who knows?

Okay, I'm down.

Gosh, I'm just loving this. I'm so glad I posted the item here. It's sold already now, but you guys have been so informative and so entertaining. I'm just having a blast. I'm so bad at pinstriping, I couldn't hope to attain wussie status right now. I have watched really good pinstripers and they are pretty amazing. I do a complete different form of art work that has nothing to do with vehicles. I don't even have a 'classic' car, I have a 2001 drop top mustang gt and though I know alot of mustang enthusiasts will tell me it's not a mustang, whatever it is, I love it. (It doesn't have not one bit of pinstriping, vinyl or otherwise on it). But, I have to say. A real pinstriper is a real artist!

Thanks guys for being so interactive and so entertaining
