advice to seal gloss stripes?

I have added some vinyl stripes and they are gloss not matte. I read Dylan's advice that you can wax/seal gloss vinyl with anything you regularly use. So I was thinking about what I had in the closet - you guys decide:

BF Crystal Seal
Opti Coat 2.0
BF Wet Diamond
Prima HydroMax
Adam's Machine sealant

What's the verdict?

Interested mostly in opti coat...any experience on stripes ? Chris at Optimum not answering - on vacation....

Personally go with the options coat. You will not have any problems. You can even put it on ppf without the worry of it yellowing. It even adds a new glow to the ppf.

obviously ppf is the stripes, but what does "ppf" fully mean?

not too concerned about swirls, as my rinseless technique and orbital procedures never swirl my cars. However, I am however, looking for it to keep the surface uniform and not blotch, from daily tree droppings I have a problem with in my condo. Will treat them tomorrow and report progress here as we go forward.
