Say if your normal method of washing your car involved a pressure washer, would it rip off the plasti dip?

Someone previously stated that plasti-dip can withstand pressure washing.

I don't know how true that is, I feel after a regular cleaning, the plasti-dip may begin to show wear.

It wont' come off with pressure washing given the method we dip our cars. Given the latter piece of info, it wont' come off with a normal hand washing either. It must be deliberately peeled.

Nope... when I dipped my one set of wheels, I deliberately tried to get it to come off at the power washer and it didn't effect it at all.

Im, I miss Amber in AW

As do I my friend. But her next stage is also far from white. I figured, why not promote atleast till it becomes warm again, no? Protected from salt and grime this entire Winter!

Curious as to how you expect to get it off. Also curious as to how you got the texture so even across such a large area.
