One thing I've discovered is that plastidip generally isn't good for sharp lines that have been masked off.

Don't do your calipers with plasti dip.

Just buy the dupli color paint kit. Did mine in red yesterday with it.

Has anyone found a good source for cleaning plasti dip parts, such as rims?

You mean to clean before or after you dip?

Idk if you would actually need this, especially since you're not talking about a whole car that's dipped. Besides that just regular soap and water.
