Hot Rod Surf Pinstriping Brush – HRS-1
Our company has teamed up with HOT ROD SURF founder and artist Mark Whitney Mehran (MWM) to produce a specialized pinstriping brush for traditional freehand hot rod & motorcycle pinstriping.This brush is a faithful reproduction of the modified pinstriping brush that MWM uses in the Hot Rod Surf Pinstriping Techniques Movie and his book Basic Hot Rod Pinstriping Techniques with Hot Rod Surf.
The Hot Rod Surf MWM series pinstriping brush is a multi-functional brush that is great for the 1950?s style freehand pinstriping and rugged enough to be put into daily professional use.
The HRS-1 brush is specially designed to do it all from thick lines to thin lines, straight lines to circles, and everything in between.
- This brush was manufactured with the beginner in mind and has the quality for the seasoned vets.
- The brush is made with the classic dowel handle and the hair that is used is European dressed blue squirrel hair.
We are excited to bring such an expensive haired brush to the striper at an affordable price.
This new brush is a "work horse!" It's designed for long stripes. The squirrel hair comes from China and it is softer than the traditional Siberian squirrel hair. This is the same hair we use in our #10 Original Mack Striping Brush. It's a very "fast" brush and lays out long lines. DeWayne is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #24 Series 1310
Glawson/Mack Extra Long StriperThis brush is shaped like a Fast-Lite Striper, but with a hair mixture of squirrel and brown taklon for more body and snap. Available in #00 with a hair length of 2 1/4. Also, good for water base paint or any other paint that is more dense than lettering enamel. Available in size 00 Series 1645
Mixture Of Squirrel Hair & TaklonThis brush is similar to our Fast-Lite Pinstriping Brush, but with mixed hair to give the brush more body. Water-base paint has a higher density so mixing taklon with pure squirrel gives the brush body and snap. A generous amount of pure squirrel ensures the brush can carry enough paint to make it a good striper. Available in sizes 00, 0, 1 & 2 (see chart below)
This Gold Ferrule & Capsule striper was introduced at the International Letterheads 2002 show in Mars, Pennsylvania. This 'made for traveling' striper is 100% blue squirrel and easily tucked into a pocket for stripers on the go. Available in 2 sizes. (see chart below)
"Once upon a time in Michigan, Texas, and California, lived a lazy pinstriper. He wanted to make a lot of money fast. This pinstriper was busy with dealer lots, asphalt, dirt, and gravel. He pinstriped 20-30 cars per day in sun, rain, and wind. He started with a Grumbacher 1010, but when the wind blew, the little brush was taken by the wind. He wanted a brush the wind would not bother. He called Grumbacher and they made him a brush with taklon bristles. All was well, but the lazy pinstriper was still not happy. He now wanted to pull longer lines. He called Grumbacher again, but they sent him too short of a brush. He was told they had been conquered by the evil Kohinoors. The lazy pinstriper contacted the Maine Brush Company, but the Maine Brush Company was also conquered. The search continued for the magic bristle, leading the lazy pinstriper to the Andrew Mack & Son's Brush Company. Other brush makers suggested a blend of natural and synthetic bristles. The blend was highly sought after, a rare commodity, and soon to be extinct. He called Chris at Andrew Mack & Son Brush Company and cried, "Woe is me! These other nitwits forgot the formula and can't find the hair (or their ferrules either). The mighty Chris said, “Have no fear, I have an idea!” There is a new taklon and we can do it! After much trial, the Longstriper 1111 was created, the homage to the Grumbacher 1010 as per Spinal Tap where their amps went to 11. If you do commercial work, you are going to love these. This is the best straight line brush I have ever used. Moisture has no effect on this brush and the wind's 20mph is no match for this brush." -Michael Menard Available in sizes 00, 0, & 1 (#1111)

Blue Squirrel - Grey Handle"If you use scroll striping, you'll love this brush! After 30 years of scrolling we've developed what I think is the finest brush available for this style. It gives beautiful controlled lines that respond exactly to your movements without the slightest hesitation, splitting or fraying in the turns. It holds its line throughout the pattern and gives you more response - like the most expensive brushes used for scrolling. I recommend this for beginners as well as seasoned veterans of this style." - Steve Chaszeyka Available in 3 sizes Steve is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #9
