Question painting pinstripes a different color,

Hi all, I'm now doing the body prep on my Coupe and trying to educate myself ahead of time, what i want to know is how to do the stripes with different color chasers or pinstripes along the edge of stripes. my plan is black stripes with red chasers and blue body. I know that i shoot the center of the car with stripe color then mask before body color. Would i just mask the black then spray the red, mask those then spray body color?
After writing this that makes some sense to me, any opinions otherwise? Thanks, Karl

Paint the black, mask of stripes, paint narrow band of red next to masked stripes, mask red with fine line tape, paint body color, pull masking then apply clear coat. -- Chuck
