Plastidip removal

I just wanted to show everyone out there that this Plastidip is a wonderful product

So here's a prime example of it
I did my lower bumper and messed up the edges
And had to remove it
So here's the video

No prepping just make sure whatever you're gonna apply it to is clean. Wont chip or crack peel inked you do it yourself. I did my bowties and pressure washed them after n nothing. I know there's threads about people doing this to there rims and it looks good.

Nice, does it come in clear? Could this be an inexpensive alternative to a clear bra?

I don't think it comes in clear if it did I would probably do my whole car with it

I drove around for a couple of days and didn't see any scratches or anything

Here's another use.... I had a tiny rock chip on my hood stripes. Yellow shows through black really well.. :-(. A little bit on a toothpick and the chip is damn near invisible.

3M did at one time make a clear spray for the fronts of cars. I saw it a few years ago at Advanced Auto Parts. It washes off with soap and water. Anyone know if it still made?

I wonder if Plasti-Dip could match Victory Red? Hmmm? That would definitely help in the gill area where I have some serious road rash.

I think you just opened Pandora's box (the good box). I have been thinking of trying it in my car just to show it could be used on the paint but have not had the time. Thanks for being brave for all of us.

Home Depot, better stock up on Plasti Dip.

i was worried about doing it but, wanted it done.
i did not plan on removing it.
but i along with alot of people do not live in a perfect world.
and since I am not perfect, i make mistakes also.
so it had to be removed and alot of fear that it would not be that easy to do.
i was going to recover that spot anyway.
but very much to my surprise it came of rather easy.
and it did not mar the paint or anything.
it was on strong enough that it would not come off on its own, but if needed to be removed it could be.

What's the recommended way to make an edge with the stuff? Mask off with painters tape? Wondering how people are doing their bowties. Maybe spray everything then take a blade to the edges

You can mask it with painters tape. Just remove the masking while its still wet or the dip will peel off with the tape. The tape makes a good edge
