  1. Welcome! Im in pflugerville but work in austin and am usually there a lot in my free time.
  2. Plasti-dip sells a dip remover. Its basically a high strength Goo Gone. You can order that (not cheap but works best) or use Goo Gone. The goo gone will take longer and more product to work. You will also need access to a pressure washer. However, if you just have overspray from not masking off the rest of the car, buy some cheap microfiber towel and it will rub off with some elbow grease. Honestly, if you paid for this service and the guy did a poor prep job, make him clean up the car. Guys like him give plasti dip a bad rap. If he's an authorize installer, contact dipyourcar via the website or FB group and let them know. They will assist in getting the issue resolved, the owner is actually an awesome guy, much like Adam. If hes not an authorized installer, well lesson learned. If th dip was applied correctly, it actually should peel off easier and better than vinyl.
  3. I keep a photographer on standby for such occasions lol.
  4. Applied CTC to my textured plastic bed cover about 2 or so weeks ago. It's been on and off raining since and haven't washed the truck. CTC is doing it thing, definitely worth the extra effort needed to apply it.
  5. From last weekend, accidentally catching a giant catfish.
  6. Digging up an old thread instead of making the same one. My biggest hobby outside of anything car related is bass fishing. Specifically kayak fishing. Humble brag, I have a few sponsors lol. The coolest part beside getting free/cheap stuff is the traveling I do for it. I doubt I would have gone to many places Ive been had it not been for fishing. I also still enjoy video games lol. Just a good way to relax, until some 12 year old kills me on fortnite lol.
  7. So for me the black trim restore consistently left black drip marks all over the bed of my white truck (used it on my bed cover). Even over the summer when it got to 100+ down here, it never seemed to fully "cure" for me. If I went too long without washing my truck I had to use excessive scrubbing to get it off. Ive since been using ceramic trim coating and its working great. It restored the color to my faded bed cover (just like trim restorer did). So for me there's no point in buying the restorer than using CTC to seal it in, unless i wanted to add an extra step and spend more money. Oh course it took about 7 rounds of cleaning my bed cover with RTC to get it to be perfectly clean, so I could apply the CTC.
  8. No HGG is a supplemental protectant. I generally do PS, BW or Americana, and then every few washes apply HGG. It just add longevity to the main sealant/waxes that washing and daily use remove.
  9. Ugh! I would hate dealing with that all winter. I get irritated when the neighbor cuts the grass and the clippings blow on my truck lol.
  10. Thanks, and no I never contacted Adams. I had read somewhere others were having the same issue. I figured its normal since the restorer is black and will slowly wash away like any other water/oil based protectant. Ive used most of the bottle already too, thanks to the bed cover lol. I think the ceramic trim coating is my new go to, ill see how well it holds up against the rain today.
  11. Sorry, just realized how confusing I made that post. I had trim restorer on and cleaned it off. Now I have on the ceramic trim coating only. Wasnt overly impressed with the restorer leaving black spots all over my truck any time it got wet.

    Otorro from a local sushi place. It was amazing and expensive lol.
  13. So I finally got around to ceramic coating my bed cover and all the trim on my truck. The trim restore worked but after rain, my white truck would have black drip spots from it slowly washing away. Anyways, is there anything I need to help the coating last or stay effective longer? My main concern is the bed cover. It was a lot of work to scrub that thing down 6 times with rubber and trim cleaner. I'd prefer to not ever have to do that again lol.
  14. I had plasti dipped wheels (my mustang is currently fully dipped for the 3rd time and I had dipped my truck a few years back). I find that APC worked great for cleaning white dip. I hadnt used any specific WC other than that because APC at a 50/50 dilution worked fine. If white is overly dirty I would spray 100% solution onto a micorfiber and lightly rub the dip until its clean (doesnt take long). Just be careful, thin dip can rub a hole in easily. For protection I used tire shine, spray it on a microfiber, wipe it on, than buff it off with a clean microfiber. It does great at adding a slight sheen, protection, and makes the surface slick and not rubbery feeling. VRT works well also but TS is much cheaper (plus i have a gallon I need to use up).
