Looking for reasonable or cheap pinstriping

Anyone know of a good striper (or stripper?) in the Boston/Metrowest/Worcester area? I'd like to refresh my stripes, but somewhat on the cheap as I may be selling the car sometime in the next year. Had one quote for $75, one for $150. It should be done right, but I don't want to pay a premium.

You're in Boston, you got a quote for $75, and you don't think that is cheap? What is that, like half an hour's labor? Go get it done.

Gee Whiz guys... where did your ' do it yourself' spirit go ?

They make long magnetic curved deals which you put on the car next to where you want the stripe.... you can get the paints and the squirrel tail bristle brush from places like Eastwood Company...A little practice on your kids bikes, wagons, etc will make you look like a pro....
