    I am a huge fan of pinstriping and scroll designs. Us New England guys see it all the time on trucks. I bought some supplies and tried it out. I was just happy to finally get this done where I was happy with it. This art is not easy to master and takes tons of practice. I copied this design from my dads truck and will build on it later.

    Running good. Drove it quite a bit this spring when we were planting. Getting ready to move the one Boss plow over to it and then decide weather its getting a flat bed and a liquid unit or v box.

    Sweet. Glad to hear it's serving you well, not that I had any doubt it would.

    Nope no issues. Put new tires on it and need to tighten the steering up nothing major.

    IMO the tailgate is a bit much, but thats just me. I wouldn't have the patience to do the side of the truck so straight lol. Hell, I couldn't do the tailgate design if I tried.

    I finished the body line stripes and have continued on to some designs. Here's one I did on each side of the cab. The colors are black (primary), blue/green (secondary) and "apple green" I mixed for a third. One Shot brand paint.

    Looks great! I don't have a steady enough hand for that. I have a buddy that stripes. He's like watching Von Dutch himself. I love it.

    Von Dutch is the man. A true legend in this art.

    Got rid of the last design and replaced it with this. Much happier with it. A redo on the tailgate is next. I can do much better now.

    Ok, scrap nearly everything I had posted. It's been a while and I painted on some new designs since then that are staying. I also numbered my truck today. #4 for my 4th F250 and 4 of us in my immediate family. This section slows down this time of year, so thought I'd give it a bump.

    One Shot sign paint. It doesn't require clearcoating and is easy to work with.
