Is Plasti Dip washable?
For all intents and purposes, a “dipped” car (that is, a car coated in Plasti Dip) can be washed in exactly the same way as a traditionally painted vehicle. Since Plasti Dip provides a protective coating against UV rays, salt, etc., applying waxes or similar finishes/protectants after washing is unnecessary.
Problem is usually caused by spraying from too far away but if the wind is creating overspray then there's your answer. The solvent is evaporating from the specs of dip before it can land on the surface to flow and even itself out.
Yes. Just let it fully dry/cure for a couple weeks before doing so.. At least until it loses most of its "grabby rubbery" feel, and feels more like a soft plastic to the touch..

It is VERY different than regular spray paint, its sort of self leveling, spray it on THICK, you'll want to spray a layer just thick enough so that most of the dimples in the surface of the plasti-dip almost completely disappear, if you're used to spraying regular spray paint then you will probably freak out a little
it turns out that plastidip fades quickly over time. I have to apply back-to-black every few weeks to keep my trim from looking faded and splotchy now. If plastidip will just fade in a few months, I might just keep on with what I'm doing.
After that last coating of Plasti Dip, wait 15 minutes for it to set up before applying the Glossifier.

No. Plastidip is made to be peeled off so it doesn't matter what you actually put on top of it. That being said,The more coats you use,the better it holds up over time.
