to the OP, you have to peel the edge tape before the plastidip dries. throw a last wet coat on it and right away peel off the tape to get a clean edge.

it is extremely easy to remove if you get thick coverage like 4 or 5 coats. it's actually way easier to remove than vinyl because you don't need to use a heat gun, or anything at all to aid with the removal and it leaves no glue residue that vinyl might leave. why do you hate it so much are you just that close minded? you've probably never ever used it, just rant on forums because you can. or actually used it once and failed miserably.

Why the heck would I type my opinion about Plastidip if I didnt use it before "duh"?...Come on dude!....And giving an opinion about a product that makes your car look tacky makes me a bad person then?....Geez!

I used Plastidip on my car before..looked good when you first apply it....then after a month it looks like PooP at the time I did apply 5 layers sometimes more...of that stuff and was still a PITA removing it all the way off.

Clearly, you had a bad experience.

It is all about application. As I've said, I've also seen some really poor vinyl application.

Hi,

I've had good and bad experiences with plasti dip. It's cool when it works out and you apply it right. It also sucks when you have to remove it because it didn't come out the way you wanted it to. The perk of it is that it's cheap and easy to use though. It goes both ways, good and bad. It goes both ways with almost anything.

They even have a product to help take it off too if it wasn't applied properly. I think it's called dip-dissolver or something of the sort ?

add to that the many videos out there that show how to use it, and there's a lot.
dipyourcar is a popular channel, lots to learn from.

yep, just take a look at their results and judge from that, not what most plebs achieve with plastidip.
