    It's been 3+ years or so since I painted any pinstripes, and I was using HOK urethane striping enamels. Those paints are super durable but a serious PIA to work with because of flash time. Too expensive for any large area work like murals, but ideal for panels, vehicle work, or automotive airbrushing because of it's compatility with automotive clearcoats.
    I mention this because - While I've got some pro attention to a another paint thread - I'm thinking of picking up a brush again and havin' a wack at some panels or something - what's the latest and greatest paint for this type of work?

    Hot Hues might be nice.
    I was at a show with Dewayne Connot and Paul Quinn and they let me try it.
    It brushed out fine (but they mixed it for me)
    You have to use their thinners/hardeners but it's pretty much custom.
