Hot Rod Surf Pinstriping Brush (HRS)
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.

The Trickster is a striper with a handle length of 4-1/4". Jim Norris helped design this brush and with his sign painting background likes the longer length of a brush handle. For the stripers that prefer a shorter handle the modification is quick and easy. The striper is made of pure blue squirrel hair and has a length out of 2-1/4". The long length of the hair allows the brush to carry a good load of paint for a long distance. You can stand the brush up on the tip to create super fine lines even with the larger sizes. Available in sizes 00, 0 & 1
Kazan Squirrel - Bronze Handle"Just a hair' faster than the Vortex, but with all the quality, this baby moves right along. As fast as you can think of a design, the typhoon seems to read your mind and anticipate you next move. The hair was chosen for quick response time and accurate placement on any surface. I especially like this brush for motorcycle work because of the curved surfaces and the brushes 'forgiveness' in tight turns. I am amazed at its performance every time I use it." - Steve Chaszeyka Available in 3 sizes. Steve is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #9
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)
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
The conversation to introduce a liner and scroller/pinstriper was discussed for quite a while before it finally became a reality. We tried many different blends of hair whether it is natural, mixed or full synthetic. Von Dago decided on a full synthetic which is our synthetic sable. This is the latest and greatest synthetic on the market today! It is unusual in the fact that it absorbs the paint and flows off the fibers in a controlled manner. This hair absorbs like a sponge. I knew we were on to something when Von Dago, a natural hair enthusiast, fell in love with this synthetic. This brush is offered in sizes 00 thru 2. Available in sizes 00,0,1,2 This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
