Vinyl Help

So I've seen a lot of people with vinyl stripes either on the fenders or going down the entire length of the car. I'd LOVE to be able to do this. I just have a few questions.

1. Where do you suggest to purchase the vinyl from?

2. What method do you prefer (wet or dry application), and did you run into any problems?

3. What process do you use to line them up to be seemingly perfect? Tape? A laser?

4. How durable is vinyl when done right? I.e., is it susceptible to water, or peeling off when washing your car?

Sorry for the questions but I couldn't find a darn thing using the search function. Lots of old, insignificant threads clogging it up from 2010 or older.

I've seen those also and have been interested in putting one on to cover where someone hit my car...

Thanks a ton for the website references! Now I can quit searching for where to buy them. I'm ordering a pair on eBay shortly. Question, I've seen the ones with a border stripe, ones with a pin stripe, and ones that are just the hash. Which do you guys think looks better? I have an Imperial Blue balt and I wanted to get white fender hash stripes.

I've never done anything like that before so I'm really not sure...
