Are those vinyal stripes and graphics durable? I have been considering applying Carmaro style stripes to the hood and tailgate of my S10 Blazer. I was told by the manger of a company that applies vinyal graphics to commercial vehicles that some will peel or can be damaged by a car wash. I only hand wash but knowing what a car wash can do to them will give me a good indication of their durability.
Painting them on with a clear coat is the best option but that is also five times more expsnsive.

|mr4speed||Just as you said is the easiest way: mask off and scotch brite the area and apply the semi-gloss stripe after all your buffing is done.|

When do you apply a semi gloss stripe
When do I apply a semi-gloss strip to the car. First before body paint, or do I apply all my base coat and clear coat, then color sand and buff. The mask off and scotch brite the area and apply the semi-gloss stripe? Here is an example of what I want to do.
