    hello all

    i was wondering if anyone knows a way to help:

    there roads near me have been recovered with that chipping crap, so from having to drive on it i have what i think is little spots of tar. on the bottom of the drivers door ive washed and washed it but i can get it off.

    i would love to find away to get it off

    Clay bar will get it off or even a steam pressure washer will to, can also use bug and tar remover but I haven't tried that one yet, others worked for me (same road repair ****)

        panel wipe works well too.

          Get some tfr on it just make sure you give a car a really good wash after using tfr

            WD40 will also work well.

              Get a clay bar and use that, make sure to put plenty of water on it to lubricate it.

              Alternatively if you're cheap you can use blu-tak, but you won't get the same results and for the price of a clay bar its just better to get one.

                dont use a clay bar, its not its intended purpose, you will do more damage to surrounding paintwork

                use a proper tar remover, (not autoglym as its as weak as carling lager) and dissolve the tar first, this will take roughly a minute to eat into the tar, then wipe it off, concentrating on a small section of the panel at a time

                after youve used tar remover, wash the car again to make sure youve removed any excess tar remover

                  Just use some dedicated tar remover such as abliTARate from auto finesse and it should come right off
