    Thats all I use, works great and probably the easiest stuff to put on and take off. I use it everywhere, the glass, plastic, and of course the paint. Makes everything look like new and the water just flows right off.

    Thanks, I know that peeling it off when its solid and thick. But my overspray is more grainy and spaced out. If that makes sense.

    Is it strange that I'm stuck here in Afghanistan and all I can think about is getting home and washing my truck???

    Yeah, sounds like you'll just have to individually peel off each spot.. :mad:

    Nah, there's a way to get the overspray off. I had some and I got it off by washing it with something. I don't remember what it was so I don't want to tell you the wrong thing. Look in the plastidip megathread, that's where I found the info.

    Mask off your badge and the clean areas of the truck then spray plasti-dip over the areas with overspray. Let it dry and I'll bet you can peel all of it off at once.

    I do the same. I have two German Shepherds and they shed like crazy. It's really a losing battle. Anyone have any other suggestions other than the lint rollers?

    You can also put on a rubber glove and rub your hand over a surface. It will bunch the fur for easier removal.

    the GSD hair is easier...it's the freaking husky hair that gets looped into the fabric of the Wet Okele's lol...think I'll just add an old bed sheet to the backseat to cover it up instead.

    Use a can of compressed air upside down to freeze the gum, then use a spoon to scrape the hardened gum off. Then a 10:1 water/ woolite mixture should remove any remaining residue.

    That's a really good idea I think.. :cool::eek:

    How cold would a can of air upside down get something? It's nitrogen that does that right?
