    Removing tar/bitumen

    Hi guys!

    Council decided to to dig up the road just past where I live and I've managed to get a nice great big splat of tar/bitumen stuck to the sill of my white A3. I didn't really notice it until I washed the car and whilst trying to get which I thought was dirt, off the car with my finger nail, a bit of it came off it along with to my complete horror, a little paint.

    So what next? How can I remove the rest without dulling the paint/lacer around it??

    thanks,

    Kempus

    Try either autosmart tardis...which gets rated very highly, I own a small bottle of, but I'm yet to use,

    Or auto glym glue and tar remover, which i also own and have used and confirm works a treat.

    The AG is easier to get hold of as its sold in halfords.

    autoglym intensive tar remover works a treat for a fiver a bottle you can do the whole car a few times if you mist it...i worked at a coke oven plant that produces tar and my car always had black specs allover but this stuff sorts it out

    Aztec chemicals do a tar and *****umen remover which is excellent, rapeseed oil works very well or if your feeling cheap good old diesel. I work in an asphalt plant so my cars always getting splatered with the stuff. as long as your patient with the chemical and don't rub too much as the *****umen contains adhesive polymers, it won't do any harm....

    Either autosmart tardis or autoglym tar remover would be good.
