    What an LOVELY day at the Rose City Roundup. Thrashed on the TT for 3 days, listned to the RAIN all night, got up at 5:30 ,plugged what holes I could, climbed in at 6:00 and drove though hard rain INSIDE and OUT for 2 hrs to Portland just in time for the rain to STOP. But let me tell ya Brothers it was WORTH IT! What an awsome turn out it ROCKED.

    Its OK you still can!
    i got tired of waiting for the guy to come back and lay the second color on. he said he had to get to the stripe off. never saw him after. The stripes are a temporary thing as I threw the primer on for the show.

    sadly YES:confused: i think he found out "it aint as easy as it looks on TV".
    WTH it'll fix pretty quick with a palm sander and some primer!

    TT? what the hell is that? From what i saw, what he had done didn't look to good. what was his name? I'm sure he has just ruined his reputation.

    i think that guy did a guys truck also, it was pretty bad. i was going to try and fix/redo it for him but i ran out of time and steam
    if the guy with the black and purple truck sees this, i left a note on your dash so you could get ahold of me

    just my 2 cents, but if the owner wants his truck re-striped, let them find a new pinstriper. just because the pinstriping isnt the best doesnt mean the owner doesnt like it. just a respect thing ya know. im sure you wouldnt want another striper steppin on ur toes

    didnt start this thread to spank 'sumguy" the nameless striper. but since ya'll asked heres his work.
    as the owner of a Paint Buisness (i average about 33 exterior repaints per year) I'll be the first to admit I have screwed more then 1 ( maybee more)up. But as a professional also know how to put my hat in my hand and stay on it untill its right.

    So now a question for you stipers. when your using One-Shot on a sunny day do you thin it to get it to flow better i also noticed there are ways to load your brush to get it to hold more paint and allow a longer pull. I learned that I suck at it when I did my avatar. at 55 and going blind I have a hell of a time with that fine stuff

    Ton Truck! Tall T's were actually the Coupe( some say it was "the Doctors Coupe). 1925 was the first year of the fully enclosed all steel Ton Truck. They ran 25-27. Mine was first titled as a 24 but with no numbers on the truck to conect it I used a 27 plate so i dont have to keep paying the STATE

    sure I get it. this would make the paint flow better. Lightly thinned with the spirits and I would asume palette is wiping it side to side on whatever you use...magazine etc this would lay the bristles in your sword brush into position.

    when I cut windows I use a Wooster 3.5" angle sash. i thin my paint, load it up, wipe the sides(lays the bristles in line) and pull my line. i can get a good 2ft in 1 pull. i think you guys are on the same principle just with alot finer technique. difference if with latex a little water makes it go away when you mess up. Enamel is a little more permenent.

    I'm not a striper and never will be but one of the good ones that I have watched more than once sets up his shade (think portable carport) and puts the car to be done under it and lets the metal cool off enough so that it isn't an issue. I don't remember his name or handle but he striped for years at Vintiques Nationals in Yakima. He usually had the owner park the car under the shade then they discussed what the owner wanted as far as striping and the price and then he laid it out and the car had cooled off not to be an issue.
