DYC has the dissolver for PlastiDip that works very well but cost a bit more. Spray on couple coats and let it sit then power wash off.

Best way to remove is to not use it. One of the worst fads over the last decade. People home depot modding their cars. Get real matte paint or go home.

light mist of goo gone and a power washer usually do the trick

Yeah I know that haha. I got the STi wing with the car when I bought it and the previous owner did a TERRIBLE job with the plasti dip, I suppose he didn't know how to use it. So I had to find a way to get it off. But yeah, all of the stuff I have ever plasti dipped comes off extremely easily.

What worked best for me was a power washer. Just pulled mine out of the garage and it started to peel off extremely easy.

Yay, another useless comment. I used it on a few things in/on my car because I wasn't sure how I would like a more permanent solution. Flipping the bill on powder coated parts to later hate the decision blows. There is nothing wrong with a simple and cheap solution to customize MY car. We are all enthusiast, so pull your head out of your ass.

If plasti dip is sprayed on correctly it should be easy enough to remove without powerwashing it

If plasti-dip is used, you're a dip-stick.

just make sure you watch quick dyc video and make sure you put enough coats on, itll be hard to get the peel started but once you get it up it will come right off

It's actually not bad for winter wheels. Protects the wheel from the elements and looks decent during the dirty winter months. Come spring, snap my 18's back on.
It's a bad fad if you do it year round for looks.

priceless

Yeah I'm not a huge fan of plastidip but I did use it on my rims to see how I liked the satin black look before I get them powdered. Its actually coming off this weekend. And I know it will come off easy since I put it on thick.
