    Peeling Mistakes

Hi All,


I recently did my whole truck with anthracite gray.  This was my first time using Plasti Dip, and I'm very pleased with the result.  I actually love the way the truck looks now.  But...  The Plasti Dip is lifting in some areas.  It lifted on the lower panel of one of my doors, and on my front bumper.  I peeled the areas, cleaned degreased very well, and re-dipped.  The front bumper is starting to lift again though in the same areas (see pics below).  What could be causing this? I really want this to last for a long time.  Any help is appreciated.  I'm including pics of the whole truck as well if anyone is interested in the final result.

The truck look good!!!


The issue with the front bumper, was there any paint peeling in that spot before you dipped, was it dry(no water)?

Thanks!  Yeah I let it dry for 2 days before painting (both times).  There was no paint peeling.  It is a chrome bumper.  I used the pre-dip spray to clean it good before paining both times.
