astroracer 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.

Lizer I had seen a good idea Brian mentioned, which was just to spray single stage for the stripes.

302 Z28 The way I would do it is lay down your base coats first and within the window for applying clear (usually within 24 hours) tape off the stipes and apply base stripe color. Allow base stripe color to flash properly then apply a lite coat of clear overall. Follow with sucessive coats of clear.

If you apply the stripes after applying clear depending on the color you may wind up with a look like the strips are raised off the base.
