I went to the big motorcycle rally in Hollister on July 4th, and found a great pinstripe artist Larry Fairfield -951-541-4891 based in San Diego, but is on the road at many car and bike shows. He did this under an hour! whole car for 325.00






Any one else care to share? Please post! :)

WOW! That is most impressive! Is that really painted on and if so, is it airbrush or paintbrush?
I like how it turned out.

He used a 3" long bristle paint brush approx 6" total length - kinda like a pencil, all freehand. I'm so glad I took his choice of color and design ( My suggestions would have ruined it!) Lesson learned: Just ask how much and stand back out of the way and let 40 years of pinstripe experience take over. This man must be psychic, he knew exactly what I would like before I even had a clue what I liked! If you ever run into Larry Fairfield at a car show or bike show check him out, he's really amazing!

:yes:
Now that is really attractive.
The pinstripe colours go very well with the deep Pearl metallic white.
You are lucky to have such a talented artist nearby.
Excellent,

Cheers,
Bryan.

Most impressive for brush work!

I just noticed something, what is that on your gas door?

It's a BIG BRASS decal, a gothic style tuba logo for a pro shop in NJ.
Tuba players need cool cars too!

Very nice. No attempt to question your political leanings but the bumper sticker? :no: It just takes away from such a sharp look. 8)

Very Nice. I agree about the sticker. Just my opinion but I would never put a sticker on the paint, only on glass. I made the dealer take their stickers off to.

the detailing is quite impressive for being done by hand - i would be so worried about making a mistake, but clearly that artist has years of experience! i also agree with the others about the bumper sticker :p

OMG I have seen his work before at a couple of shows I was at. I love the colors together. That truely was not a bad price for freehand pinstripping. I am so Luving it.

Typically I'm not keen on paint detailing and modifications on new cars, it can often look kinda tacky... but in this case, that's just a stunning piece of work you've had done there! The colors are just right, and the whole thing is clean and classy and done with great taste.

(raises hat in respect) :yes:

Cheers,

Tony

The Obama sticker killed it for me.
I'm not a bumper sticker fan, doesn't matter the affiliation. I do have to thank Obama though. The CARS rebate of $4500 for my inherited 1992 F-150 is the only reason I'm going to own a Cube. Salesman says I should have it within 2 days or so. I grow impatient.
