Plastidip is far more forgiving, with the exception of wax. You need to make sure your paint is 1150% wax free. That means washing the entire car with degreaser, then again with undiluted dawn, then parked in the garage overnight to dry. Then, you wipe the entire car down with alcohol (home depot) and you'll be ready to spray. If there is ANY wax on the paint, the dip won't stick.
