    Sounds like it was done poorly Plastidipping my c7 corvette orange. My truck sits outside 24/7 and my dad now has it. Zero maintenance ever. No cracks. No peeling.

    Removed the tail light trim pieces today (way easier than taping around them like last time.)

    Washing tonight.

    Has to dry a full day.

    Next step is taping and masking it off late tomorrow night.

    Maybe spraying it Friday and Saturday

    Is that really your garage or your Goodfella's setup for whacking and disposing of wise guys? A man could get rid of a lot of bodies in there . . .

    Just to play Devil's Advocate...you could have clearcoat failure after 6 years on a car that sits outside 24/7.
