    Try using something pointy or small to peel up enough of a corner to grab hold of. If it's too thin then just use gel Goo Gone. Eats it up.

    I think dipyourcar.com sells stuff that will reliquefy plasti-dip. I've also heard WD-40 will loosen it a bit. Good luck.

    I used a little brakleen, but I wouldn't recommend it on a surface you really care about. I used it on my my OR wheels and it dulled the finish a little, but not bad.
