Kustom Kulture event raises £900 for county air ambulance

Kustom KultureA unique event took place on Sunday 14th October when over 200 pinstriping & airbrushing enthusiasts attended the Pinstriping UK Open Day and Panel Jam organized to launch the UK’s first 100% Pinstriping workshop in Wigston.

Pinstriping is an art form pioneered in 40’s & 50’s America when Hot Rods and Bikes were decorated with intricate line designs and flames to give them more visual impact and individuality. In the UK it is better known as coach lining and is more usually seen on horse drawn & vintage vehicles.

In the USA these events bring together thousands of people demonstrating their talents both with paint brush and airbrush. Panels for the auction were donated from all over the UK & Ireland also from some well known artists from the USA, Canada, Sweden, Belgium & Holland.

It is hoped that this will become an annual event
