Yeah you need to wait a little longer and wait at least half an hour to take off tape. Mine came out pretty good. I had an air bubble but I know it wasn't going to be perfect lol but its way better than paying 60 to 70 dollars

I disagree with waiting to take tape of. When the dip dries onto the tape when you pull it off. It's going to come up with the tape. I pull my tape off as soon as I spray the last coat. I also only wait about a min between each coat. I have heard of several people waiting to peel the tape off after several mins but it only turns out good if they use a razor blade to cut where the tape and dip meet. My luck I would sneeze and scratch my car. So I do not do that.

I've made it all summer u till now through countless bad weather days and auto car washes w/ no problems. Only had to re-do one wheel on my S10.

I shot the fender flares on my Jeep this summer too. I freshly waxed the Jeep first, then painted the flares. Used a razor blade to trim between the flare and body, peeled off what I could, and just used a cotton towel to rub off the overspray (came off pretty easily with a fresh wax job). Yep, didn't tape off a damn thing!

Worst kind of trouble maker there... 16 year old dip'n everything.... Kids today. 'Cause you know, it is soooooo much harder than paint to clean up. Maybe they think you'll get freaky and try something kinky like use it as body latex... Protecting you from yourself.

I say, forget the condoms, dip your junk instead!!!!
