My friend Björn stopped by the shop today, he had his new truck parked out front and I got to check these old stripes he’s been telling me about.Blog Imagethese patinad pinstripes are really high caliber. the fine line type designs are simple and have a nice old school trucker style.Blog Imagein some areas the red has kept clear of the suns UV rays and is in the same condition as the grey with lots of nice little scrapes and chips.Blog Imagein other places you can see the red is almost all faded away, where as the grey is holding up.Blog Imageyou can see in the red here how the lines where painted, starting at the top with a freshly loaded brush and with les coverage at the end of the line and so the end of the line fades away first. Blog ImageBlog ImageThis part was really cool ,you can see the faded away red stripe left a pistripe with a high gloss left from underlying clear coat.Blog Image Also the signature was painted in grey over the red stripe, so now there is actually kind of a red out line or drop shadow thing around the name, I’ve never seen anything like it before! Looks like is says “Nuk…” ? Blog ImageVery Nice!!!!

Like the army war car he may or may not be building, with the marine attack surfboard. Anyway …Blog Imagethese stripes are signed “Stanford” if anyone knows the full name of this striper let me know, it could be Steve or Michael but I really have no idea anyways some really clean lines..
