I'm a little confused on how the Plasti Dip peels off. Did you have to cut the edge with something where you wanted to peel? I can't see that being possible as it would scratch the paint underneath.

I guess what I'm asking is how were you able to peel exactly along the edge of the moldings?

It`s kinda like magic, cuz I was worried about same thing. Now some areas I had a hard time grabbing a small strip so I used a toothpick to get it & that doesn't scratch the paint. I was amazed at how it works! Plus we did get some over spray even past what we taped off but we just used a Terry cloth rag & it wiped off.
