There will be a difference in texture of a 'sprayed' paint stripe versus a 'rolled' paint stripe.  You'll have to find someone local that has the proper equipment to do it correctly.

For now, simply documenting the location and thickness should be the main priority.  The paint stripe will most likely be one of the very last things done on the restoration.

Thanks! 

This is all very helpful!  I have actually been speaking to shops in my area and thus far I wouldn't let any of these guys in my area paint my kids cozy coupe. This one big shop that specializes in antique car restorations (I would call it a hot rod shop) told me that they put a thin glaze of bondo over the entire car "to give it that slick finish". I cringed, thinking that he really meant he sucked at prepping and painting.

Dudley, I'm not familiar with the Beugler striping tool. Is this how one would paint this stripe?

Goggle the name and you'll find a tool that looks like a cartridge/cylinder with a felt wheel at the end. First came around when pinstriping was the rage (sort of the "anyone car now pinstripe like an expert...." thing.  )

There are still guys that do pin striping (antique cars often had it on their wheels and body lines)  You just need to make sure it follows the factory patterns

On your other comment - yes there are many shops that skin and cut exterior bodies for the prefect flat sides. Works great on custom cars  and even what some call "restored" . Basically a Show car body and paint job.  Not the same as what we see in good concours jobs today.   Mention that you want to have factory orange peel and painted wheel wells then watch their face ;)

I told him "bondo?....over my entire car?  I don't want ANY bondo if at all possible."  He then said "well you'll never get it looking good again then."  I handed him his business card back and walked out the door.
