I'll add that there are 2 tip sizes for a Fluid Writer. Off the top of my head I don't remember if the black one is bigger or smaller than the gold one. It can be helpful to use a bit of sandpaper to gently round the edge at the bottom of the tip with sandpaper so it doesn't scratch the walls of the lug. Also lining paint designed for striping has denser pigments than regular spray paint. This is so it will get full coverage in one pass. Regular spray paint colors might not cover well enough so a little of the base color of the frame will come through. House of Kolor makes striping paint in various colors for this purpose. 1-Shot is an another brand that makes striping enamel.
