Painting front grill

So i already painted the front grill with plastidip, then it started peeling and i painted it again. Now it is peeling again and i think i am going to paint it again and paint it right this time. What would be the best way to do this, should i sand all of the plastidip off then primer, base coat, then clear coat? I also used plastidip on my window trim also, would the same procedure be applicable?

Sand, primer, paint, clear. Same for the window trim.

I'd sand it all off. Then you have a clean base to work off of.
