Check in the paint section at your favorite auto parts place. I've seen them there.

Hello everybody !
just found out another trick for the litle strip the pen is good and nice but a litle bit to soft and if you rub to hard it goes away, I found some pinstripes by trimbrite they come in silver
and they are 1/8" x 36' it is self adhesive accent stripes.

Got my Krylon Silver leafing pen at Joann etc. fabrics and crafts. $6.47 w/tax, not bad. I will be in the garage this weekend trying it out. Thanks for the tip. If this doesn't work out, I noticed some actual silver leafing foil and adhesive that might work also. /www.joann.com/

I RECENTLY BOUGHT A SILVER LEAF PEN FOR DETAILING THE CONSOLE LINES AND IT WORKED GREAT. THEY ARE AT ANY GOOD CRAFTS STORE.

Hi Guys! I bought a silver paint marker from Walmart. They are made by Testors for models. I paid $6 for a 3 pack (silver, black & gold). I used them on my console on my 77 and on the trim on my Chevy Truck. Works easy and looks a lot better than it did. |saluteflag|

Sharpie -- the company that makes the popular black permanent markers -- also makes a silver pen as well. I got 3 for a couple bucks.

I used it on the dash of 2 vehicles and they are great for marking where to cut metals that pencil, pen or black marker will not show up on.
