    Default Tarspots

    Just washed that car, and I have noticed its covered in Tar Spots.

    Have done a search and cant find anything (search limitation, Tar=too short).

    What do you guys recommend?

    I have used Autoglyms Tar Spot remover in the past, but could this be too harsh?

    I use AG tar remover sparingly.
    I think you should alway re-polish afterwards though. Even if you don't polish the whole car, just polish the bit where you used the tar remover.

    Thumb nail does it for me. If the car is waxed the tar just falls off this time of the year.

    Claying will get some off but it shortens the life of the clay as it gets shi77ier quicker.
    Your best using a dedicated tar remover like the AG as mentioned.
    I've been using it today on mine and it requires minimal effort.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    The best thing I have found is AG Tar remover. As BigP say,s it is best to re-wax the area again.

    Yep, AG Tar remover, but make sure you wash the area after & re-wax/seal.

    AG stuff for me also but if you have any Megs DC1 that will work also, but with a little more effort.
