Paint protection and racing stripes

I just scheduled my car to get the protector paint protection rust protection and underbody coating but I also want to get racing stripes done. Should I do the stripes before or after? Or can I even have both?

I'd have the PPF put on over the stripes. That'd be a nice look and you could take care of the stripes more easily since the surface will be the same across them and the rest of the car.

And I'm not sure it'd even be okay to put the stripes on top of the film, if I'm understanding your question correctly. Would they adhere properly?

I don't think he is referring to ppf (ie: paint protection film), I think he is talking about the sealant.

In which case, vinyl could be added at any time. If you have the stripes painted on, then you would want to have that done first as the entire hood will need to be redone.

If it is ppf, you will still need to have the stripes done first.
Perm-a-grin in place.....
