please help.. plasti dip..

So a couple months ago I did my hood all black with plasti dip.. and I only used two cans.. bad idea.. today I tried taking it off and my whole hood looks messed ugly.. it has a lot of parts with rhin layers I can't remove.. I was thinking re doing the whole hood with at least 5 cans so I can get a really thick layer when I take it off.. or does anyone know how to remove the thin layers.. it looks ugly so I'm not driving it tomorrow..

Microfiber towel and a lot of effort lol I think it'd be easier to just spray over it and peel off once it drys up

Goof off or Goo Gone, and a lot of elbow grease.

I used goo gone, just don't use to much, and mix with some water, pay attention to the rag and make sure your not pulling up your paint as well

Good off you just spray it on and wipe it off with a towel. I let it sit for about 15 sec.

If u use too much, or go to heavy with it, it WILL start to strip your paint, I painted my vert top from tan to black, had some over spray on my trunk and side fenders, goof off took it right off (goo gone/good off essentially same thing)

I've always sprayed a tiny bit on a rag, than scrubbed off whatever I'm removing, I always have a clean dry towel in the other hand to immediately wipe it off my car before it starts to take the paint, my buddy sprayed it on his bumper to remove some overspray, left it on for about 30 seconds ( so he says ) started scrubbing and his paint was rubbing off onto his towel
