FreeFocus also good advice, thanks. That seems like the safer way not to boff up the work.
re: getting to it. I'm itching to get to it haha. I bought the cans of black and a can of glossifier almost 2 weeks ago now and I've been too busy to get it done and the weather was shitty. *sigh*

So the point of the multiple coats is so if you do want to peel it up it is easier. And it holds up much better, less wear. Etc.
Really all you have to do is just tape off around what you want to do. Spray it, then once done spraying what you want, you will peel the tape off. Let it dry 5-10 minutes.
Put the same tape or new tape on where t was before. Same process. Repeat as necessary for 3-5 coats.
I usually tape newspaper down around the area to catch the overspray. Just saves time having to rub it off by hand later.
Get to it!

I'm assuming then that the coats under the last coat go back to more of a liquid state when you apply the last coat allowing you to pull off the masking?
Thanks for that quick reply btw.

|swansong||What seems to work best is to remove the masking a minute or two after you've finished your last coat, while the dip is still wet. Otherwise if you wait until it is completely dry you risk pulling the actual dip up with the masking. Plastidip does this weird thing where each additional coat kind of liquifies all the previous coats, even if you've waiting the necessary 10 or so minutes. It's magic.|

Alright I have yet to do any dipping of my car but I'm hoping next weekend or in the evening some day next week I can get around to blacking out at least some of the chrome on my car.
My question is this. I read through this thread and a few others and there seems to be conflicting info, unless I'm reading it wrong. If you have to put multiple coats of this stuff on in order for it to peel off later, how do you mask off an area and let it dry between coats then remove the masking when you're done without peeling off all the plasti dip?

Here's what dip CAN look like, if properly applied and executed:
