    Supposedly when it dries after a couple of days its harder to peel off, if any little part messes up it is easily fixed

    I think the trick to Plasti-dip is to apply a LOT of coats, like more than 5, to get it on really thick. Makes it super easy to peel off as a big sheet.

    Although I got my first first-hand experience with it today, and as expected, I was not impressed with the finish.

    Did you buy the matte or glossy?
    If evenly done it should only use 5 coats,
    Did you watch the youtube videos?

    I have no interest whatsoever in using plastidip on my car.

    Yes because the doors and fenders on the corolla were top notch.

    It just looks so cheap and ricer. And the stuff I saw and felt was spotty and stickyish.

    ehh, the gloss makes it kinda look like a cheap paint job. I like the satin look of that s4 better.

    It also helps if you don't suck at driving manual.

    I didn't say you have to be great, obviously everyone stalls or gets a bumpy start from a light, eyeroll yourself for putting words in my mouth. I'm talking about people that really don't know what they are doing, just slamming gears around and riding the clutch all day, basically being a woman.
