Anyway he spent about 2 hours in my driveway with the super tiny knife, much smaller than my Xacto, taking off all sharp edges and cutting it back behind where it was pulling up at the edge. (about 1/8").
Since then I haven't noticed any more issues, but we will see in the spring after I pull the car out of cold storage in the ice planet weather we have had if it has done anything. I do run my car each week even in storage.
Note that I never put a car with vinyl stripes in a automatic car wash. hand wash only. No need for wax as using the TST treatment I have done for about 15 years now, like permanent wax; PTFE type coating. Touch up with quick detail cleaner all you need between washes.
What ever you do, don't get any knock offs that sound like 'EnviroSeal"
