If you’re into car mods, you’ve most likely run into a product called Plasti Dip. It’s basically a way to paint your car or rims, while retaining the ability to remove it later. The product is extremely easy to remove… when applied correctly. A common cause of difficulty removing is due to either not applying enough coats of the product or not properly preparing the surface for the paint. We’ve seen that the coating will still come off, it can just be a very difficult and tedious process.
To remove a bad Plasti Dip job fast and easy, use LIQUID WRENCH Penetrating Oil (Product # L112). Our penetrating oil is safe to use on painted surfaces and will not harm the clear coat. Just spray the Penetrating Oil on the area and let it soak for a few moments. Then with a clean microfiber clothe, wipe away the Plasti Dip. Really it’s that easy! Apply more Penetrating Oil where needed.
We’ve tested this out on rims and grills. It can be difficult to remove Plasti Dip from areas like around lug nuts and car logos.
