Silver Leaf & Pinstripes on a 62 Impala
My first pinstripe job since we got to Cali! The job was to lay some silver leaf designs on the hood, trunk and sail panels on this 62 Impala, then chase them with black pinstripes. Day 1 was spent applying silver leaf and brushed on clear. I like to wait a day in between leaf and stripes so that everything can be nice and dry. Day 2 was spent laying down the black pinstripe outlines and expanding on the design. We're talking about maybe adding another color to the designs when I go back to do the long lines down the sides.
