What stripes should i do? Walmart ones or ones from AM

So lost on which one will last longer! I want to do black stripes but don't have that much money to buy them off of AM. Then I dot want to waste the money on Walmart stripes if they peel off with a few days. So what do you guys recommend??

What kind of stripes are you looking for? Might want to check out ebay. 3M is high quality.

6-8 dollars at Lowes/Home Depot. its basically plastic spray paint. You can spray it on your car and it will leave sort of a matte finish. Then if you get tired of it being on there you can peel it off, from what I've heard its a PITA to get started peeling, but if you've got enough coats on you can peel the whole thing up in one piece. and it hold on well enought to be pressure washed even, once it's set long enough. Look at www.dipyourcar.com and check out some of their videos on there of the stuff they've done.

I don't know about putting wax over it, and I dont think you'd have to take the wax off for it to hold either. I don't see wax hurting it though.
