    Tar remover

    Well I just got back from washing my car and I noticed some small spatters of tar along the font side skirts and fenders. Its really bugging me and I don't want to touch it until I know what to use. What kind of tar remover do you guys use? I have some Goo Gone around the house. Would that do the trick or is there something else I should use (paint safe wise). I did some searching and saw that the tar remover scuffs the clear coat, and I'm rather hesitant about going that route.

    Tar Remover is nothing more than mineral spirits. It should be OK to use, but make sure you wipe it clean afterwards, and then follow it up with a coat of wax. I have done this before with no problems. Finish looks factory afterwards.

    I use TurtleWax bug and tar remover. Works great, takes that tar and bird poop right off. A little elbow greese is needed on those tough spots.
