maybe they invented that for the cheap bastards who don't wanna pay an artist..... who knows.

the less people try to do it for real, the cooler it is anyways.....

as long as i does not die out. of course finding one shot reducer and neatsfoot oil is already impossible enough.............. nevermind.

why bother,

Mineral spirits and 10w30 are much cheaper.

screw 1-shot reducers.

That's funny....I was wondering why they don't put "tattoos" in Cracker Jacks anymore.

Of course, that's a snack food that just isn't the same out of a BAG!

I wonder if people would still buy those shirts if they realized how much they looked like my favorite print blouse from Macy's? ;)

It's kind of a bummer that they exist, but they've around since the 50's and they haven't put the real guys out of work yet.

Ive been custom painting air brush and doing my own pistriping for over 30yrs and when I started there was NO PLACE available to show how to everything there is out there now days.I know Im beatin an old drum here but it sure has come a long way and now you can get anything ya want .And most of all the striping (not all) is just copies of all the real original from the past.I have my own style and not repetitive as I try not tobe. But still think the best is one who isnt copying everything and calling it "old school". See one....seen em all syndrome.Just ventin I guess.

you guys just wish you thought of it first ... http://stores.ebay.com/Twisted-Chrome ... this stuff is cool, and brings the 'craft' of pinstriping to a broder audiance ... i'd rather have these then some of the poor a$$ pinstripe jobs i've seen some guys do. look, you can never replace paint, but you sure can have a little fun for a few bucks then chargin someone $150 for it ... grumpy bunch you are.
