Just pick up the regular kind. Rub it on or soak it in a towel and rub. This isn't rocket science.

Aircraft paint remover.

Can get it everywhere, easiest place would probably be autozone. I don't know why some people say you can peel off plasti-dip. Whenever I have used it, it's been like asphalt.

I didn't spray enough layers to peel it. the moment i peel a part it just rips. plus there are some tough spots that even light sanding wouldn't remove it.

Try MEK- methyl ethyl ketone a xylene based product or a chlorinated aerosol brake cleaner. Plasti-dip doesn`t like these chemicals, Goo-gone also works. Warning ! need heavy ventilation or outside, absolutely no flames or sparks or it may be the last time you work on a rig. Good luck and try to peel off what you can. smile.gif

just an update the googone works great. Used it to remove excess off my car as well (after I used up all my rubbing compound) when I was blacking out my emblem.

Best way to remove plasti dip without harming your paint is panel wipe. just spray a thick layer over the dip and leave for a few mins then spray another coat and leave again for a few mins then jet wash off starting from the edges with a powerful jet wash as cheap ones don't really work and it will start to strip off but doesn't dissolve the dip so you have no mess and panel wipe is harmless to your car. hope this helps as it did me and got the tip off the guys who dipped my car and that's how they do it. thumb.gif
