My '66 was tape. When I repainted it, I just about screwed it up royally. I got in a rush and on the drivers door, I had the stripe painted on and cleared over already and it was in an arch by 1/8" in the middle. Doesn't sound like much, but when you stood back and looked at it, it was a disaster!
I had to correct it before I shot my clear again.
I guess what I'm saying is, don't trust your eyes. I cannot judge a straight line up close now that I wear glasses. Use a straight edge to check your masking if you decide to paint it on.

I was told 5 years ago during my car's restoration ('65 GT) that the common reproduction stripes wern't very good and would not stick too well.
My restorer had my Red stripes made by a vinyl graphics shop, same shop applied the stripes.
I think if I were building a restomod car I'd have a pro paint them on though.
