you probably didn't use enough coats. You just have to use enough coats and it'll peel off really easy.

Is the person who is dipping the 350z using a spray gun or just cans?

After watching those dipyourcar videos, I'm pretty curious. Maybe I'll experiment and dip my wheels and put some metallic flakes on it as well.

I plastidipped my Cupholder, before just buying a new one,and as I recall, plasti dip doesn't wipe very easy. I can't imagine trying to wipe down the car with that texture.

Lol when people use it as an excuse to preserve their original paint.

When I pulled the dip off my buddies Gti wheels it seemed like it was much easier when it was heated up. Not a substantial amount, but the wheels in the sun were surprisingly easy (after a year or so) and the ones in the shade didn't peel, but rather chipped I guess? Tried using aircraft remover and my god what a mess..

so maybe the cold hardens the dip, or was there just not enough sprayed on that wheel?

Doing it. I'm thinking a blue color, black roof/mirrors/door handles. We'll see how all the body work goes for me. Almost done with the bondo...
