So I just went through my first trial run with plasti-dip. I am impressed with it, but I taped right up to (and under slightly with fingernail) the trim. I also allowed it to dry roughly 2.5 hrs. So of course when I went to pull of the tape, it pulled up edges of the plastidip everywhere. I have a razor blade, but I am not going to take it and try to cut the plastic b/c I will surely scratch something.
I have searched the forum and I know there are multiple threads on plastidip, but didn't see a whole lot on this particular item. I have found the following hints:
1. Don't let it dry, take the tape up almost immediately.

Can anyone elaborate on the above?
I am pretty impressed with the product, and I may very well use it on my wheels in the near future just to test the look of FR satins (and mine have a decent amount of curb rash anyways).
Also, just got my side moldings from TLS, and those are GREAT. Will start a new thread with pics once I figure out this stupid window trim! I may end up getting it professionally done, but they quoted like $150 and I don't know if its worth that.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
