Stripes by Scotty

My name is Scotty George. I am from Salt Lake City and have been pinstriping since 2010 minus a 2 year break while serving a mission in Madagascar. I love this art form and all that surround it, I have begun to learn lettering and gold leafing as well airbrush. I'm currently apprenticing a full time painter at a body shop in Pleasant Grove and am learning as much as I can to expand my skills in this field. I love what I do and appreciate your support and the time you have taken to view my work on this blog. You can follow me on Facebook or Instagram, or connect with me on LinkedIn.

I'm posting on one network or another all the time and always excited to meet new artists, attend car shows and sling some paint. If you have questions or are interested in having some pinstriping done on your vehicle or other items, give me a call or contact me on Facebook, we can set up a time and I can come to you or set up a time at a local car show or cruise night! I am not a full time pinstriper, I work part time at a body shop, help run, organize and promote a car show with monthly events and am a full time student in the fall/spring, but if you would like to have me do some work for you I try to get most jobs scheduled within a week or two.

Thank you for visiting!

I love these little details...

Personally, I'm not a fan of chrome. If its a full on resto like bolt for bolt piece for piece to match the way it came off the showroom floor, I'm alright with that, that fits the era, thats the way its supposed to be... but as far as super old mild custom/resto rod/hot rod/daily driver sorta cars, usually they're not sporting a ton of chrome.. outside or in.  outside meaning the rocker panel trims, windshield wrap trim, etc... sometimes they've got accents and borders all over interior but then under the hood, they're usually just repainted colors from basic rebuilds and such... but you still love your ride and like to show it off whether or not you have the best of show totally flawless mirror finish paint and such, there's still little things that if you pay attention to and accent, people are still going to point that out and ask about it... So those of you that have seen my engine bay in the truck know there's blue and polished metal everywhere, its not just the fenders, there's little brackets and stripes everywhere on the motor as well... no chrome, just other colors that work together to create a theme that catches the eye... so now we've worked on figuring some other stuff out for my buddy's cars... here's some stuff to start out with Parker's 61 Cadillac's engine bay and Scottie R's 1970 C10 that we just picked up a new edelbrock aluminum intake and chrome valve covers for.

Parker's 1961 Cadillac Sedan De Ville "The Batmobile"
Lets face it... as much as we all love this car, its a bit of a basket case. Under the hood is a mess, not very clean, etc etc... so I'm working to change that, already a simple start with valve covers and air cleaner case that were originally blue covers from the factory and an all chrome aftermarket flame air cleaner with some work to match the covers... some other plans... still just waiting for stupid valve cover gaskets before taking the after pics. hopefully progress will be made this week :) cause i mean face it, Flat black paint, crackling exhaust, red hubcaps, white ring tires, Jade, our local UT pinup girl, (photo from this car is obviously a rat without stripes...

And with the lack of a sound system or very presentable 'back window dash' i have some plans and materials to fix this up a bit too... :)

The basic sketch.

The giant butcher paper rought draft/tracing

I plan to tag the trunk right above the cad emblems...
