I would also like to add that they would be a "ghost" strip (just a shade lighter or with a little pearl in the black base)

not much of a color difference...just a little bit of metalics in the base ot make is notice able in the right lighting conditions.

also i would be putting a outlining stripe around the main stripes in the same color (main stripe, 1/8 - 1/4 black out line strip, then same size stripe in the main strip color)
