Pontiac taped vehicle lining
Bentley Mulsanne – free hand pin stripes
These pin stripes are painted using signwriters slow drying oil based enamels, this causes minimal staining to the vehicle enabling extra care and attention can be taken throughout the process, it allows plenty of time to correct or remove if necessary causing no damage to the vehicle. Once the enamel has fully dried a manufacturers standard 2 pack clear coat lacquer is over coated on the lining to fully protect the enamel sealing it to the same durable standard as the manufacturers paintwork.
1929 Alvis Silver Eagle Coupe
This fully restored 1929 vintage Alvis Silver Eagle Coupe was given a single ultra fine line applied to the body mouldings. The line was extremely difficult to free hand due to it only being 2mm wide and the black and ivory colours being so contrasting.
Rolls Royce pinstripes
I was commissioned by matchbox classic car restorers on Merseyside to freehand the pinstripes on this 1952 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn, this type of lining is often found on high end vintage cars such as Bentley and Rolls Royce as well as prestigious luxury cars from Jaguar, BMW, Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini, Chevrolet, Mustang and Lexus. This sort of fine line work is also often found on many Lambretta and Vespa scooters, where the lines are usually colourful and have very decorative designs.
Bedford RL Lime Spreader
This old 1966 Bedford RL Wagon was an old military vehicle. It has been converted into a Lime Spreader by a Jeff Sproston for use in his Lime Spreading Business.
Pinstriping was used on the bonnet and to pick out certain panels for the truck! It can be seen at work on fields in and around Cheshire. the lime spreader is a fantastic example of one of the Sproston traditional sign written wagons that are a credit to the company.
Sproston C W (Lime) Ltd was established by Jeff’s late grandfather Charlie Sproston. The business first started with a Marshall M tractor that arrived in the goods yard at Frodsham Railway Station, Nuffield and Leyland tractors came and went then Jeff heard about this Bedford RL wagon which had been partially converted.
This 1986 Leyland Cruiser is another Sproston sign written wagon with a low loader trailer is used to transport the Bedford Lime Spreader to and from jobs, it also carries the Volvo BM LM629 front loader which is used to transport the lime to the Bedford Lime Spreader.
Leyland Tipper (DAF)
This Leyland Tipper truck is used for smaller local aggregate jobs.
It was most recently sign written and pinstriped complementing the rest of the Sproston sign written wagons.
