Nothing wrong with plasti dip as a temp measure. Definitely want the hood to be super smooth so the dip will come off easily. Still haven't gotten it all off my roof even using adhesive remover.

If you want the dip to be thick so it comes up easy then probably 3-4 cans. Think I used about 3 on my roof and almost a third of it was too thin for sure.

Tried goo gone spray gel and it worked so so. Still wouldn't get it all off. May try bug/tar remover.
