Hey all, am thinking of getting some pinstriping done on my car, but for the cost of getting it done i would rather just learn and do it myself.
anyone know where to get the brushes and paint locally?

hey deeds.....i know carlos has some equipment. hopefully he can tell you where he got it.

if not, try thrasherbill on the airspeed forum. i know he's a talented pinstriper with his own equipment.

and if not that, i know i've seen kits and equipment for sale at kms tools in coquitlam. not sure how good it is tho.

good luck & have fun!!!!!

You can use straight automotive enamel if you can find it. I believe most guys use a paint called one shot. Kms might have something for paint.
