I've decided to have red pinstriping added to the curves above the wheels, atop the fenders, to break up the blackness and match a L-82 hood emblem color. I used to see dual striped decals advertised that you could just apply yourself, but I don't see ads for them anymore.
 
Do you know where pre-sized pinstriping can be bought, or should I just get someone to paint them on?
 
Thanks,
Bill

These guys make the match for the C3 factory stripes.

Personally I like to see stripes painted vs. decals. But it's your car, stripe it how you want it. 
Unless its a NCRS restoration whereas the car was originally striped with decals.
Btw, nice looking ride. Thumbs Up

Most parts houses have a selection of pinstripe tape in various sizes and colors. Also, your local auto paint supply will have it.

Thanks guys. I'll get some estimates for a paint-on, but thanks for the adhesive options too.
