Scott, to maintain originality, stripes go over the clear, not under. These cars were not clearcoated originally. The paint you will be using is a completely different system, it's BC/CC. Some guys like their stripes buried so the finish is dead flat at the tape line, but it's technically incorrrect. Search old posts and you will find points were deducted for doing so. If you want it correct, spray the stripes over the clear. Your car, your choice.
Marty, go hunt up James' resto progress, it's complete with drips on the LCAs, dryness, missed spots and all.
