How To Do Pinstriping on Motorcycle Tank or Fenders

Doing a painted pinstripe FIRST before the basecoat makes the job so much easier. No masking involved. No trying to get the width of the pinstripe correct. Using the width of the fineline is a 100% way to ensure the correct and consistent width of your pinstripes. Paint the pinstripe color, tape it up, paint the basecoat, pull off the tape and presto, instant pinstripe.
Works great with flame job outlines, 2 tones, graphics and other paint jobs.
You can also use this technique for a double pinstripe. You can see the video on my YouTube Channel.

You will still need to be extremely careful of paint buildup laying up against the stripe area.
