It is with a heavy heart that I announce the loss of one of the UKs premier pinstripers.
He was an exuberant, beard sporting, roller skating figure, known to many as Brother Lee Shove.
One of the UKs prolific pinstripers who was a fixture at so many of the UK & EU Kustom Kulture, Hot Rod, Bike & VW shows.
He was also an excellent teacher of the craft. Someone I was proud to call a friend.
As many of you will know Simon was a regular contributor to the magazine too, reviewing pinstriping brushes, paints and other products for us.
He apparently suffered an aneurism on Friday 28th June and despite excellent care passed away on Tuesday 2nd July. Facebook tributes came pouring in from around the globe.
Simon will be greatly missed and our sympathies go out to his friends and family.
