Really? Three cans and that wasn't enough?

When I tried peeling it off, it just kept breaking, like it wasn't thick enough.

It could have just been thin in those spots. I only used ab two cans on my rims and it peels off like a charm

Or it was super dry... you could try a moist sponge over it too.

Useing more never hurt, it only makes it easier to take off, I think I used 3 layers of red and three black on all of my wheels I hadn't tried to peel it off yet but I think it should do fine. 3 cans of black and 2 red

I've read that using a heat gun helps lift it up form the surface that's painted.

What did the black and red combo look like? You should post a pic, curious too see the color that turned out. Just went through the car wash, paint stayed on with no problems!

I did all my emblems yesterday. they all turned out really well (first attempt on the front Jeep emblem not so much) except for the North Edition emblems on the side. I'm just going to remove those two from the Jeep all together now.

TAKE YOUR TIME!!!! I had to learn that the hard way. Mine took me around 5 hours as well (not including the first rim that I messed up). It works the best if you are about 4-5 inches away and let 30 min. between each coat. If you are too far away you will get a fuzzy look that is a PITA!!!! to get off. I had to use brake cleaner.
