They are not under the clear coat but are painted on. Do I need to mask off the pinstripes before I use my Porter Cable, just avoid going over them, or is it OK do buff them as well? I just don't want to mess the pinstripes up so if I need to avoid them I will.
definitely mask the vinyl.
as for the pinstripes it should be okay to polish over them.
if they were painted you may want to ask the painter if he put a clear over it.
