Question pin stripes - get it straigh!

Howdy all,

I am wanting to remove my factory cream pinstripes and replace them with thin black pinstripes that you can buy from Kmart or where ever really cheaply. I did this on my Calais when I had her but the only problem was, no matter how hard I tried to follow the original markings, when you look down the side of the car, the strip is all wonky - far from straight. I've searched the forum and there seems to be only threads on removal, not replacement!

Does anyone know of any easy way to get the new pin stripes perfectly straight (they should actually gradually curve down the length of the car). Are there any places that would do this for you? Smash Repairs?
