fairly simple.....very very steady hand. I know some guys who do it for like 150-250 bucks a pop at car shows. I dont know what paint they use...but ive seen the brushes at model car shops.
The guys at shows just mix whatever color you want, stripe your car in a tent to somewhat avoid dust, and if its not straight, take a towel with a light thinner in it and wipe the line off, start over til its straight/symetrical.
Pinstriping is fun to learn. I never did a car, but when I was in High School, I practiced on scrap hood and fenders.
Use One-Shot enamel and try using a 00 Mack brush. 00's are thin. You can trim themn down to be really skinny.
I did Chinese calligraphy also, so it helped to steady my hand.
Ed Roth has a good how to book on striping. A newer book called PINSTRIPING MASTERS is pretty good, but it's more of a showcase book that has tips from some really great pinstripers. Pinstriping Graphics by John Hannukaine is really good.
HERE (http://www.moseart.com/Pinstrbks.htm) is a link to some good books.
HERE (http://www.mooneyes.co.jp/english/shop/studio/) is another good link
And HERE (http://www.letterheadsignsupply.com/cgi-local/i-shoppro/i-shoppro.cgi) is a great link for supplies.

much respect to pinstripers and sign painters,
a lost art, that takes plenty talent and patience.

I finally bought the book.
I wasn't able to find the Mack series brushes, so I'll have to order them online.
Can't wait to try this stuff.

my dad used to be the shit at pinstriping. I doubt I'd ever have that kind of patience.
