Pinstriping- Mack pinstriping brush, one shot or house of color paint, various cleaners ( wax and grease remover, tack cloth, windex etc) and imagination

leafing- depending what ur looking for, there's 23k gold leaf, silver, comp gold and silver( harder to lay IMO ) variegated leaf all of which either comes in patent or loose leaf. Then some gold sizing I personally use Rolco but many people find success in one shot , 1/4 tape and and lettering quill ( I found using a lettering quill to apply the glue is much easier)
