Oh. The first pic looks like the white is peeling off on the left side. That's why I thought it was tape. My mistake.

Not bad for only doing it for a month. Some of it doesn't look perfectly symmetrical. Definitely keep working at it! I know that stuff isn't easy, and my pin striping jobs would probably look like a 4 year old did them.

Good themes and base design, but imma go out on a limb here and say "less is more".

That is to say - I like what you posted, but I think you have two or three times the content needed in the space you're using - does that make sense?

looks good, I have zero artistic ability so that is lightyears above anything I could have done.

I heard that a blue squirrel brush is what they use, that true? I found that to be very obscure, almost too obscure to be true.

Scooter, I know what you mean. But I am using more to hide all of the imperfections.

JeepinRRT, the brushes are wierd. I think that they used to be squirrel but that is not the case anymore.

You can see the brushes in this picture from this morning (using some of Scooter's advice)

Now you have to come up with a cool name. I got my cell phone pinstriped at SEMA last week by a guy named Von Hot Rod. Actually it might not be a bad fundraiser at a Jeep show. the phones were coming out pretty cool. Can you recomend anything to coat the paint with to make it last longer ?

The paints are made to be real durable. But if you want to protect it more you could always clear it. It would be hard on a car because you would want to clear the entire vehicle for consistency. A wax and grease remover is used before applying the lines so make sure to reapply wax once the paint is cured.
