Every layer of paint you lay over the tape will add to the thickness AFTER you remove the tape. Also, the paint will "gather" at the tape and create a higher edge then in the middle of the stripe.
I would use single stage and shoot only enough paint to get coverage. After it cures you can sand the edges and polish to reduce the edge thickness.
