    How to clean the exhuast off the rear bumper?

    After running cat-less, their is much more exhuast that exit out the muffler. I am curious to know what type of chemicals or remedies others have used to clean off the exhuast on the rear bumper? I've tried "Meguiar's paint cleaner" but that doesn't work that well. If anyone has another brand or something that have work for them - please share!

    Thank you, Harvey

    I had to use a bit of rubbing compound. Just make sure it doesn't take the clear coat off as well. I wasn't that concerned because my bumper needs repainted anyway.

    rubbing compound will remove clear coat. consider polishing compound instead. it will still remove some top layer of material, but that exhaust stuff needs something tough to get it off.

    I used the clay bar. It worked real well and even got the stuff off the bottom of the spoiler

    I'll have to try the simple green. Pretty much the only reason I used rubbing compound is because it was the only thing that worked. But like I said, my bumper needs repainting anyway...stupid PSU parking garage.
