Thanks for the support guys. The pinstripe is on the vertical edge of the rim lip. The problem is I couldn't get a even coat of clear on both the Vert and Horz surface sitting flat on the paint table. I noticed the horizontal part of the rim was thin so I made some extra passes, this added more clear to the vertical edge and melted the stripe. If I would've waited a day and hit it with another coat then.........I'm sure it would be fine. Oh well. Live and learn. I set the wheels out in the hot sun to cure hoping the solvent will evaporate and the stripe will settle. The final product is not as perfect as I wanted, but most others wont know.
