racing stripes w/ no edges?

How do you add racing stripes to a paint job with out getting an edge?

I'm spraying hot rod black and want to add two stripes.

You can either bury it in clear (common), or you can paint your stripe, make sure the edge is very sharp, and then overpaint the edge with the base color, and blend it out away from the stripe. Then when you CAREFULLY sand the edge, the sharp line will reappear.
