pinstriping supplies

i want to put some little acents and do some pinstriping on my daily beater truck, then later on my car. iv seen it done on TV, i know its a real art, but id like to give it a try.

what is required? i guess i should use the same kind of paint as the rest of it is painted with, should i pinstripe when its still soft, or do i wait till its all hard, do i mix the paint the same way? and should i scuff the suface im about to stripe?

also, these brushes they seem to use must be nice, long fine bristles, but with some firmness to them as well

what kind of brushes should i buy? i dont think my local body suply shop sells that stuff. can i order it from somwhere?

autobody0depot has an ebay account thats where i got my brush from i got a mack 00 20 series as for the paint you can get 1 shot at the site or house of kolor if you want to shell out the extra 5$ per quarter pint. The 1 shot is around 5$ per quarter pint and the house of kolor is 10$. Are you putting this over existing paint or are you going to clear it?

the brush type you use will make a big difference but it also depends on what you are doing. if your running long lines down the side of your car then the plain old mack brushes will do fine. if your doing line art with lots of turns then you want an Xcaliber. probably an 00 or an 000. the Xcalibers are slightly shorter hair and give you more control for artwork and outlining graphics but since the hair is shorter it doesn't hold as much paint so they are not good for real long lines. all the stuff you need is available from www.coastairbrush.com. one shot paints are real nice and are a little smoother but i usually use the house of kolor striping urethanes just because it dries in about 10 min. compared to all day with one shot. i'm bad for putting my fingers in the wet paint when i get too close. you should add a few drops of clearcoat catalyst to the paint to give it some durability and you will need some reducer, higher temp the better.....have fun!!

I agree with mrclean. I use mack 0 and 00 but excaliburs seem to be the best in my opinion for long straight lines.. Paletting your brush also has alot to do with the thickness of your lines
