I am wanting to add boot stripes to go with my Bonnet stripes and was wondering if anyone knew a good place to have it done in the Tacoma area.

 

Thanks

You might try Jr. Nelson in Tacoma. 922-2027  He is a master pinstripper.  Does a lot of Customs and Street Rods.  He may not do what you want, but may know of someone that does.  Good Luck,  Great Car Show this Saturday at the Tacoma Narrows Airport in Gig Harbor.  Will have my Yellow Cvt there.

 Take your sun screen. Harbormike and I did the Narrows show last year 90 deg and no shade. Lots of nice cars.

When in doubt power out.

You are right,  I have been in charge of the gate for the last 4 years.  It was miserable hot.  I wore a huge cowboy hat and drank lots of water.  This is my last year to have gate duty.  Next year British Field Meet.

NW Mini added my boot stripes.  As I recall, it was cheap and fast.

If you are really brave, you can put them on yourself.  We did and they turned out just fine.  More scary than hard.  Bought the stripes from Cooper Flags and followed their instructions. They were really nice and even gave me the owners cell phone number in case we got in a mess. (we didn't)

The hardest part is getting them lined up.  Nothing square to measure from.  You can see how they turned out in the picture at the top of this page.

You'll like the stripes.  The really lite up the boot.

The question is, "When you turn on your car does it return the favor?"
