I am in the process of getting my 67 RT ready for paint and clear coat.
I would like to be able to paint the stripes on the car using a brush and hopefully a precut mask to keep everything evenly spaced.
Anyone have any hints?
I duplicated the original pinstripes on my 67 R/T when I repainted it in 1989. I used a pinstripe masking tape that had varying "pullouts" that allowed me to duplicate the dimensions of the original stripes. I think it may have been a 3M product, but it's been so long ago I can't be sure. I did use a regular pinstriping brush and the One Shot brand pinstriping paint after the masking was in place. It came out perfectly, and has held up well for the last 30+ years.

Nice Its a good product
I remember having to do this all by hand back in the 70s and early 80s.

I was never any good with a brush. But I did and do have still pin stripe wheel bottles for doing this.
