    I think the best place get some pinstriping would be on the sides and the back of my boat! Any volunteers?

    not good, it took them 3 hours to find out if they could get them and then it will take 4 weeks to get them in. evidently they are literally shipping this via paddleboat. I guess i'll order them online.

    Why not paint them on that would be cheap and fast?

    and with a good striper, could make it more original than everyone else Tup: plus you could change up colors and whatnot.

    Gonneson's used to carry pinstriping. Give them a try. They're still in Kent I think.

    good idea. i contemplated this but was not confident i could get a straight line. it has a raised/broken shear line so the front stripe arcs up to the bow.

    the good stripers do it by hand, but ive seen some run tape lines, and then fill in between the tape, pull the tape, ect.
    pretty much foolproof if you do it that way as you could measure even all the way down if nessecary. i have no clue about auto or marine paint tho, so someone else would have to tell you what to use so you dont chip or flake it off when removing the tape.

    I don't know if he still does boats or not but Dunn Auto Graphics in Midway did a fantastic job on my truck. I know he did boats before tape became popular. dunnautographics.com
