The blade won't work. You have to remove it while it's still wet. This stuff is crazy strong and hard to cut so when you try with the blade it just tears and you have to redo it.

Ask me how I know. :/

I would wait until its just flashing over. I think it would take a lot to make plastidip run though...

I guess I'll just play with it a bit and test it out in areas on the roof before I commit to spraying the whole thing

Lol...
Nothing went into my interior... It wasnt windy, ive painted before... So like i said i knew what i was doing...
But my apologies if i didnt plastidipped how you guys think its a better way...
I just wanted to share the pics not to correct me on how im doing it....

Great thread. Has anyone down the lip and rear valence on the 2002 SVT? Would love some pics. PM me. I would like to see how this looks, as my front lip is beat up.

I think it depends on how people use this stuff and if they know how to do it...
If they dont know how to do it of course its gonna get everywhere, but if you know how to do it its gonna come out just great...
