Since the plastidip is the bottom layer which adhered to the surface, you should just be able to peel it off like normal, as if there were no paint on it at all

If you are trying to remove it all then you should be able to peel it up if you applied it thick instead of thin. Otherwise pressure wash it off.

Not sure if one of those diy carwashes with the high pressure guns would work or not. May not be enough pressure?

um i know Avie had a problem with tire shine melting it off her wheels, but idk if she had hers painted or just dipped. and i think paint stripper would take the finish off the wheels, but maybe that for an option? idk man.

Dont use paint remover, that would ruin the finish for sure. If the pressure washer doesn't work then your probably just gonna have to bite the bullet and start peeling.

You may be able to use razor blade gentle lift the edge of the paint. Maybe then it will start to peel.
