    Default Tar spots

    No luck with the Autoglym tar remover, doesnt seem to dissolve.

    The claying i did a few months ago got rid of some of it, but I don't want to muck up the clay bar too much...

    Any other products or techniques that work?

    TIA

    Stuart

    I posted the same question a few months back and the guys suggested wd40. It worked a treat! Needed a good wash after though and a bit of a wax!

    That would need to be the deciding factor. I'd rather have good paintwork with the odd tar spot than have to try and fight the paint back to condition after getting them removed.

    Anyone with bad experience of WD40?

    Thanks

    I have used white spirit in the past, followed by a good wash. Or even petrol on the odd occasion.
