I doubt it'll be an issue for a first drive so long as you don't venture too far. You'll know it if it happens to you - your brakes will drag. This didn't happen to me until about ~150 miles or so of driving.Is this residual valve issue a big enough problem to replace them before my first drive? Have others experienced the same failure? Is there another model out there that is closer to the same size as the factory ones?
Grab some naphtha and with your finger dipped in it, touch the affected areas. it'll re-liquefy it and it'll lay it back down and stick. If there's any bare spots, with a small paintbrush you can brush on some new color. Possibly use more naphtha there to "blend" it inApart from the issues with the air conditioning things have been relatively smooth. There are areas of the plastidip that are starting to pull up but I attribute that to handling damage - I had to pull my hood so many times I abraded a few of the areas pretty well in the process. I also had a few issues during unmasking that led to poor adhesion at the edges in certain areas, I think the next time I dip the car I’ll revise my unmasking strategy to better address that. Also finding a few areas of the body where rubs are happening; I’ve applied PPF in most of those areas and that seems to be doing the trick. Next time I have the dip off I’ll do some more sanding and bodywork to fix it permanently.
