I am by no means a skilled painter or a wealthy man probably gonna spray bomb my bike proper like and clear with the spray 2k seems to be the fav around hear. My question is do vinyl decal stripes turn out pretty good if you clear over them. I don't have any desire to get crazy with custom painting but want the bike to look as good as it can. Is this a dumb idea? should i just attempt to spray the stripes as i imagine that would be cheaper by a little but it usually turns into a costly mistake with me having to start over. Also is it best to get the base coat down then stripe if painting or do the striping as an undercoat .. if that makes sense. If using decals should i clear the base coat prior to decal or base coat--> decal--> clear. Or should i just hire the pro painter who quoted me $450 for a 2 tone paint job. <-- is this a reasonable price i just need a tank and cowl painted. It is a scalloped tank job with two stripes on cowl outlined in gold is what he quoted me on.
