Default 1929 Tudor Straw paint for pin striping

I am getting close to finally finishing the 29 Model A Tudor that I have been working on (had to stop working on it for a number of years due to health issues)

Anyway, I need to find the correct paint for the pin striping. Book says the name is Straw

Anyone out there have a formula or a place that can supply ready made paint??

Here is the code for PPG concept, which will work well for striping if not reduced, but only activated.

I was thinking about something in a single stage paint. Maybe I am wrong in thinking that it would be nice to be able to take mineral spirits and wipe off any mistakes.

Any thoughts?

Concept IS a single-stage paint, and can be wiped off with a cold reducer. Even Wax&Grease remover will work. Still believe I would mix up some One-Shot striping enamel. Maybe Jim Brand would mix you some in a baby food jar and sell it ready to go.

Better yet, have Jim Brand stripe it for you. There is none better in the business of striping.

I bought TopCoat signmakers paint from Eastwood , (1) yellow and (1) white, small cans and mixed in the white until I matched the MARC color chip. As for the actual striping I used Finesse stenciling tape in the 3/32 width.

Sorry Brent--I got my stages and components mixed--Yes you are correct, Concept is a single stage however you need to mix a hardener with it. The "One-Shot" striping enamel sounds like what I am looking for. Who is Jim Brand?

Does anyone have some pictures of the striping on a 29 Tudor--especially the end at the door hinge and the reveal that goes up to the top area at the rear side window (see pix below--I don't know where I found this picture & I don't even know if this is correct)

I am also interested in seeing how the reveal color stops at the door jam and at the seam between the side panel and the rear panel. Does the center door hinge get painted the reveal color?

Not a point car just a fun car

Jim is from New York but at times he lines up several jobs and takes a road trip. He also attends every MARC meet. Don't know about his attendance at MAFCA meets.

Jim not only does a fantastic job on pin striping but he also does touch up, monograms, etc.

To tell you the truth, a beautiful paint job looks fine but when the correct striping is done the car looks 10X better. Amazing what a little paint in the "right places" does for the look.

Yep most important to have a nice pinstripe, then the metal valve stems for the final 2 things that really set the car off.
