I would just take your time and put the razor flat actors where you want it to peel off right. Itll take some time but better than restarting

When i did my fender stripes I got the best results by pulling off my masking before the dip set.

Just bought the Plasti-dip, painters tape and masking paper. Now I just have to decide on what I want. I've always wanted a solid stripe down the middle but I don't know, that kinda seems big for just a spray can. Any suggestions?

Yeah guys definitely just pull the tape off before it sets. Don't take a razor to your car. If your doing a big area do the middle first then the edges after. Pull the tape as soon as you stop spraying. It doesn't need to be that thick. Also, you can retape the edges and spray again. I did this with my stripes. You can also spray right over vinyl so you can change up the color whenever.
