Plasti dip lettering

Ok so I want to plasti dip the "MUSTANG" on the back of my car i don't know if anyone else has done it with plasti dip but I've seen people with it painted. Can anyone give me tips? I read you're supposed to take the tape off when wet, but do you do that 3rd coat or 1st then retape?

I don't think it can be done with plasti dip, because since it is vertical you will need to do light coats so it doesn't run, but then when you peel the masking tape off it will stick to the tape and ruin the entire thing. Plus idk how you will even mask off all that in the first place. I would say just stick with the black stainless steel lettering AM sells.
