Default Remove old dried up Plasti Dip easily

I originally sprayed the wheels with plasti dip glossifier in order to keep the white paint clean, but after a couple months I couldn't get the plasti dip off without scratching the the paint underneath. I made a video of how I removed the old dried up plasti dip from my wheels using Turtle Wax. This method should work for any type of plasti dip.

Difficulty: (scale of 0 to 5) -1 lol

Time: 12-30 min per wheel

Materials:
- 2 cans of Turtle Wax Label and Sticker Remover (~$7)
- A brush
- Power washer preferably or you can use a hose like I used
- Soap, degreaser would make your life easier (~$5)

***Video is monetized, I am not trying to get more views by posting it here, but I don't really have the time to re-upload an ad-free version of the video.

First post guys, take it easy on me if I'm doing something wrong

Plastidip is only difficult to remove if you apply it to thin, 3 coats are a minimum with this stuff, no matter what kind of coverage it looks like you have. 3-5 coats makes it that much thicker where it pulls up in a sheet.

If your scratching the paint underneath while removing THINLY dipped parts, take the damn razor out of your hand and use your finger tips! Paint should never be ruined with dip.

Ive done my rims many times, and it peels off in one solid piece every time

Yeah I realized that I probably applied it too thin, this was my first time using plasti dip. I used over 5 cans on all 4 wheels, thought it was enough but apparently not lol. I didn't actually scratch the paint when I tried to remove it, but was scared I might.

Nice. Makes me actually want to try the paint now. Didn't want to worry about it not coming off after a couple of months

Why not spray the clear plasti-dip instead of using the glossifier if you're just trying to keep the paint from peeling/chipping?

Clear plastidip has a matte finish, the glossifier is more consistent with what you would expect from a clear coat of paint. I didn't want a matte finish, I wanted it to look as if the wheels didn't have any plasti dip (and it did come out that way).

Plastidip melts and runs like water when sprayed with brake cleaner....
