Trying to plasticoat

So I'm trying to plastic coat parts of jeep but it keeps pulling apart when I pulled the tape off. Any ideas how to correctly trim my vehicle without pulling the plastic coat off?

I've never used that stuff but have you tried pulling the tape off sooner?

Pull the tape while still wet. I like to put down a very thin coat(not full coverage) over the entire area, then come back and spray the middle area normally. Lastly as I get closer to the edge near the tape, I do two thick coats quickly and pull the tape while it is still wet.

This YouTube video shows the method

When I plastidipped my wheels and headlight bezels I made an attempt to also plastidip where a grille insert would go. So, with all the curves and tons of little tape bits I wasn't able to tape and retape. What I did didn't turn out flawless by no means, but from a distance it looks ok. What I did was use a razor blade to start the tear when it would try to pull up more of what I wanted to keep.
