Gold leaf, hand lettered , hand pin striped by Ace Fine Line's Dave Dunbar on our dart when we returned it to its original paint scheme. Pic by Geoff Stunkard. We are very lucky to have access to Dunbar's amazing talents up here in Western Canada.
Man... That's a sign painters dream job! You don't even have to make sure that both sides look exactly the same! Not that my work ever does, even when it's supposed to...
Beautiful job, by the way. Stylish and simple, and the red drop shade really makes it POP!
I gotta believe there are more than 2 strippers in Roanoke!
Have you tried the Gold and Silver Club?
Some doors I painted a couple of weeks ago.
I have Dirty Dave. Should have said there are no good strippers in Roanoke. A couple good stripers. Damn auto correct.
Here is my old 34 Int. with the original paint from 1935

That's got a nice, loose feeling to it. I'm digging those N's, but I'm not quite sure what to make of that O with the square center in it...

She is a sweetheart and great painter.
TB33 ,What is an acid brush? It looks good.
they are cheap little brushes with sheet metal handles and stiff, coarse bristles. i put the stencil on, sprayed it with a little paint then before it dried ran the brush around the letters as if i was painting them on. the stiff bristles remove enough paint to get the look of hand lettering that has worn down. remove stencil and hit it lightly with a little scotch brite.
