    good news! i got it sorted the other day,forgot to update this thread (sorry guys).
    tar remover wasn't strong enough as the polish was so thick!
    i applied a small amount of nail polish remover inside the boot and waited,nothing happened so using the tips of cotton buds i kept rubbing over the polish and took around 90% of it off,then gave it a coat of tar remover and with some elbow grease the remains just wiped over :) Happy days!!
    100 cottons buds,nail polish remover and half a bottle of tar remover later my paint is back to normal :)

    Well done buddy, it sucks when people do this (my own car was vandalised a few weeks ago), so I'm glad you managed to sort it yourself. :beerchug:
