I did do some other testing over the weekend and found that you can use standard spray paint on the "dipped" area and still peel it off with no bleed through or getting to the cars surface. So now on to the pics.

There ya go, let me know what ya think. The next thing I may try is to get a can of touch up spray paint, from a auto parts store and try to somewhat match the factory black. Wish me luck!!
That looks freakin awesome, but I have a suggestion if I may.

I would start the point of the rocker striping at the front wheel opening. The way you have it how, it looks like someone applied the stripes too far back.
