Wax and Rally Stripes

Any thoughts on how to handle the stripes when waxing the car? I have waxed my car once and decided to completely avoid the stripes. I figured I would get some other thoughts on the subject. Sorry if this was already covered in other threads.

My detail guy suggested taping the edges off with the blue painters tape. It is supposed to work great. Make sure its the blue painters tape and it will come off very easy.

I was wondering if Zaino is alright to use on the stripes? I've waxed the deacals on my 89 IROC with no problems but I'm worried about never using zaino before. any input?

What about using the clay on the stripes? Should you only use the clay on the paint, but do everything else on the stripes as normal?
