Peels super easy, spray a coat wait 5 min, repeat until desired, holds up to wash, rain, heat very well, I had it on my 3.7 for over a year with no discoloring or peeling

Just a little background on PlastiDip. The dip in the name is because it was originally designed to dip the ends of tools ( pliers, cutters, wrenches) into to replace a worn off grip. Never really intended to be brushed. I'm not really sure why they ever made an aerosol can but it's a thick compound and will not look good if brushed and that's why when spraying it you have to use light coats so that it doesn't clump and run.

I tape mine about 4 in away from the emblem and then peel the excess off. But you really don't have to tape anything off. It just makes the cleanup easier hope that helps

Yup that easy but be careful and not let the tape touch the PlastiDip on the actual emblem BC it comes off just as easy before it sets and you can also go in and remove the pieces in the center that you don't wish to be black. And like I said before, be patient and do very light coats or you will be removing it and starting over from scratch. It will run very easy. Also make sure you are shaking the can like it tells you to. I think it's like 2 min of shaking before you start and shaking constantly in between coats. It makes a difference in the overall finish. If you are worried, practice on anything in your garage or whatever that has a semi smoothe surface

The most difficult thing to do while plasti dipping is restraining your self from going overboard. I plasti dipped the two chrome items on my car, the license plate surround and my CAI. I removed everything then sprayed 10-12 super light coats and it came out perfect.

Exactly! It's real easy to want to step up the pace, start spraying too thick, and ruin your project. The can says 3-4 thick coats, but I prefer slow and steady with light coats.

I do it in a shed with doors shut so no win. Overspray is bad
