The black panel across the front of the hood seemed large to me, so I used a large design there to minimize the space.

Plenty of lines for a fine old Ford

When this customer first called me about pinstriping his truck, he told me he was about two hours from my shop and wanted to set up a time to talk about what he wanted done. I told him if he was definitely planning on having me pinstripe it, let’s just set an actual scheduled date to pinstripe it. We would discuss the work beforehand, then I would get started.

When the truck showed up I was impressed with the quality of work that had been done on it—except that I didn’t like the way they had two-toned the hood. I thought that the red should have come down much more on the front of the truck.

The black panel that had been created across the front of the hood seemed a little too large. I didn’t tell the customer that, but I knew that I needed to address it by using a larger design in that area to pull the visual image of the truck down lower.
