The striping really is impressive! What brush do you use, a Mack? or a liner? One Shot paint? I have tried this and failed miserably, now I cheat with a Bugler wheel, which only works on flat surfaces.

 Yes I have Charlie, about two years ago was the last time. The first time I fired it up after the cleanup and paint job, the 25-30%
of the reddish paint on the bottom of stack turned black. Nothing else went bad.

Thanks for the reply Tommy.

Again, really nice job on the restoration.
