Re the Beugler - looks like $103 to get started with their basic set (which they call the 'deluxe kit' ) - price goes up from there. Looks interesting though. Website : http://www.beugler.com/kits.html

Brian also described a tool to me, but I've never been able to search one up.

Regarding LINING: I recently needed one for lining (not pinstriping), and finally settled to take a Testors 'Paint Marker', in gold color, and a sharp one sided razor blade... and trimmed the felt tip down to a very small point and went with it: http://testors.com/catalog_item.asp?itemNbr=1440 This is similar to earlier post. I tried a LOT of markers with poor results before using this Testors pen. Viscosity of the enamel seem to differ between colors - I took the exact same steps as above

NOTE.. both solutions, to me, are not ideal because of the thickness of the 'body'... so close to the tips. So, underneath the bottom lug on the head tube.... it got a bit difficult to control the pen.

Take care rich pinder van Nuys, CA
