Hi Matt,
I did the pin striping and it took bloody ages mate to try and get it looking right, once i got going it got easier but had a couple of hours each night on it, started with the tank as that was a flat surface, it looks ok so it will have to stay now !!!. Very Happy

Cracking job Pete something to be prode of. Don't forget how we like a video once it's up and running. Wink

Steve looks good but you sit need a steady hand, and the paint to flow just right, and someway of getting it to go in a straight line.
