Hi John glad you got a chance to get out with the car.  The board has been extremely quiet. I guess everything is working fine. To hot for car shows but the weather seems to be getting back to normal temperatures.

Fingers crossed.

Quote from: frankp on August 08, 2022, 04:55:55 PMChet you found an expert to pin stripe your car.  The finishing touch!  frank

p.s.  The picture identified as crazydave's car belongs to someone else.  Dave's '29 has the Kari-Keen trunk on the rear.

The pictures were in with the roof pictures he sent me when I was redoing my roof.  I probably pasted them with Dave's pictures.  Frank it's nice to see you are on the ball. 

BTW... how are things going?

Quote from: Touring29 on August 06, 2022, 11:18:31 AMMy thoughts about the stripes. The lines of the car haven't changed and they probably took great pains to make it look good. What looked good then looks good now so you are most likely very close. Besides that with all the research you have done and no one seems to know exactly how it was how can anyone say yours is wrong?

Byw your car is gorgeous!

Thanks for the compliment.  I am a firm believer in doing whatever makes you happy after all it's your hobby and your car.  :)

I can send better pictures but heading to my daughters for the weekend.  Closeups of some key areas.  The guy who painted on the stripe exceeded my expectations. The work really makes that finishing touch.

The pin striping was done yesterday.  95 degrees and sunny.  I couldn't get clear pictures, just to much reflections. The attached photos don't do the car justice.

Quote from: Russ T. Fender on July 26, 2022, 02:29:55 PMGlad you found what you needed.  I have been searching for the correct striping for my 30-U coupe for years and have yet to find an unmolested example to copy.  The striping on the restored cars is all over the place. I would love to be able to get the striping correct but since I am almost ready for striping and have no clear guidlines (no pun intended) I will probably just do what I think looks best.

I feel your pain.  You might try to find some old ad photos from old magazines.  Even the pictures I posted of Dave's car there is no definitive truth.  Everything seems to be either a best guess or what the consensus among Plymouth owners is.  You could give a call to the POC's 30U tech advisor.  He might be able to provide some guidance.

From Tods website see Link >>> 30U Info

You can always do the striping once you are reasonably sure.  This will give your body paint time to cure.  My car was painted last year, and I am just doing the striping now on Aug 4th. They will paint it on its not vinal. 

Good Luck

Looking back at pictures I was trying to find guidance for the people painting on my car's body pin striping.   Like around the hinges on the 4 door sedan.., the stripe is above the hinge but is not on the hinge for the lower stripe.  See photo of Crazzydave's survivor below.

I looked for pictures that showed as many original details as I could find.  Not restored cars.  Dave's car was my standard because it seemed unmolested.  If your car has wooden wheels, these were also pin striped.  Ted (reacertb) has info and pictures of the wood wheel pin striping.

Does anyone have a picture that clearly shows the pin striping requirement for the 29U sedan?

False alarm..., I found what I needed.  But any words of wisdom are always appreciated.

Cool Car, Hot Day.., living the Dream  :)

Just curious, how did you run the car in the parade if you just got the new disks now. 

BTW I don't think you should over tighten your disk bolts.  I don't believe they should deform the disks.

Quote from: Russ T. Fender on June 24, 2022, 06:17:10 PMThat's amazing.  I had cars painted by MAACO back in the 60's with less than satisfactory results.  I guess these guys recognized the importance of what they were working on and went the distance for you!

I don't know about all Maaco shops but this one in Dover is a big shop and they do a lot of old cars.  Of course, I paid for the extra care but still the cost was just under $2K for everything.  Excellent job.., maybe I got lucky ?
