How to remove Road Tar from paint work.

All you need is WD40, your finger & clean coth, spray it onto the tar , wait seconds then remove, Amazing... Quids in ££££

Does not damage your paintwork..

I Didnt know this untill i got a MB
 
I use petrol, is this cheaper.......
 
Guilty of using petrol too. Then again I wouldn't be surprised if the 'tar remover' are 95% petrol?
 
Don't forget to re wax the area afterwards.
 
Paint thinner - very good.

And for stubborn, brown, cheapo-pad brake dust baked onto rims (not this car, I hasten to add) ... oven cleaner - shifts anything.
But waxy-shampoo afterwards.
 
:ban:Oven cleener:ban:

Oven cleener is Sodium Hydroxide (Caustic Soda) based and will strip most paint and it will attack ally wheels.

Nasty stuf

Thanks for the info - but it's fine (in fact, actually requires a LOT of rubbing) as long as you wash your wheels with waxy shampoo afterwards.
I defy anyone to suggest anything that actually WILL remove baked on cheapo (not me, but previous owner) brake pad-dust from alloys.
 
baby wipes work if it's not been on too long
