Australia, Daz the pinstriper

One of the best days I had on my holiday in Australia was when Wasko (with the yellow Ford Falcon XB) took me to visit his mate Darren Bennett, who is a signwriter/pinstriper. As soon as the door opened and I saw the old-fashioned fridge with pinstriped door and a little Ratfink on top of his computer I knew I had come to the right place! Daz was building a sweet little BSA and his Satin black pinstriped "sled" was the coolest car I have seen in a long time.
Daz had just painted this Dodge pickup in satin black and while we were discussing pinstriping he asked if I would like a little demonstration. Hell yeah! Daz just uses 2 thin guidelines for symmetry and a few beers for hand stability and makes up the rest as he goes along. He makes it look easy but I am sure it takes a lot of practice!
