Wife's first striping.

Just basic lettering on the embossed covers, but I'm pretty happy with it. Nice to have some of her work in my project also.

That looks like a really neat job. I know it is a LOT harder than it would seem.

I looked around the web for some decal type letters for my early 50s Olds covers without luck , So I will try to do my embossed letters someday....maybe after I get new glasses.

I know it took her a couple of tries, but it pretty much wiped off before it dried on.

And Speedy, bowtie red


And I was all concerned about a blue motor, but its ALL dodge, including the upgrades.

I have a guy here in New Mexico that does that kinda work for me. He's been in the sign business for years and very good at what he does. Your wife's work looks as good, if not better.

Ohhh, striping...not 2ps but one...She is pretty darn good! I'd encourage her to more striping for you if she enjoys it, getting a wife involved in a shared hobby is always a good thing. Dan

This was kind of the test run so to speak. She started getting interested at a car show we go to up in Buffalo that is also a pinstriper convention. Spent a good hour watching the stripers last Feb. The hope is that she will be doing more on the exterior once I get it done. Now that I can finish putting the engine together and fire it up I will be more happy about the project, so will probably get it into its paint soon.
