I would suggest a BC/CC. Lay down the white first. Then lay out your stripes and masking. Shoot the stripes, remove the masking, and give it the clear. Dont use any more paint than is needed on the stripes so that you can sand and buff the edge out of the clear.

Be damned sure you get them straight. Nothing looks worse than crooked ***** stripes.
