Quick, how do you remove a good amount of overspray? Alchohol? Buff compound? Thanks

Did the emblems yesterday, going to do the taillight bezels, wheels and hood tomorrow. With the hood Im undecided if I should do the solid stripe down the raised area of the hood or plasti dip the entire hood. Has anyone plasti dipped the whole hood with the spray cans?

I have seen pictures where people did it and they were pretty much tiger striped. The spray nozzles on the cans you buy in the stores are not designed for spraying large surfaces. I think that dipyourcar.com has some special nozzles that are designed for larger surfaces.

Dipped my wheels today and learned a lot about application and removal. First and most important is the distance you hold the spray can. Gotta be 5 inches or LESS or you'll get "texture". This results from holding the can too far away during application. Apperantly the dip dries slightly as it is sprayed at a distance resulting in a fuzzy texture. AND, removal of textured dip is not as easy as 'just peel off'. It took forever!
If attached pics work, the "textured" wheel will be first, the finished product will follow.

Tip:
I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet but I found out that if you decide to remove plastidip and it won't peel off because you didn't put enough coats on you can go back and add a couple coats and let it dry, it will then peel off just like you added the right thickness in the first place. I found this out on my S10's wheels.

Has anyone plastidipped their trunk spoiler on a 2SS? (or any spoiler like it) Does it hold up to you constantly touching it to slam the trunk? I don't want to work around it, I'll touch it frequently...anyone?
