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.

I would like to add one thing be sure to give the white bace coat more time to flash before you tape off your stripes are you could have discolored line where you tape the strips off
