I have the same problem, most on here swear that tire shine does not eat the plastidip. IDK what kind of tire shine everyone else uses, I have tried armouall, black magic and a few others. All do the same thing, if I get one drop of tireshine on plastidip than that spot is gone.

Here is some more tireshine overspray on my spokes(those are not rock chips)

Friend's corwn victoria sport. Did the front grill in black and peeled off the Ford emblem and the chrome. Next step is to do the square parts in the back in gun metal grey (the black part on the police interceptors) and get a marauder spoiler. Another day . . .
