Tar removal

O.K. the other day I was driving down the road and all the sudden the traffic stops.
After waiting 5 minutes the traffic starts to move again, right over new paved highway!
So you know what this means. LIL ZILLA is totally covered in tar all down both sides
of the truck.I hand washed the truck but didn't help any.What about gas?Will gas
hurt the paint? I tryed some castrol spray that said tar removal on it but didn't work.
What else can I use?Thanks in advance!



LIL ZILLA SAYS HAPPY TRAILS!!!!!!!!!

Re: Tar removal

Mix 50% kerosene and 50% water, soak a rag in the mixture and clean off all the Tar. After wash the truck with regular car wash detergent, it will not damage the paint.

Good luck

Re: Tar removal

I think WD-40 removes tar

Re: Tar removal

Don't forget to wax the paint where you applied those harsh solvents.

Re: Tar removal

Go to a a part store, ot better yet, an automotive paint store, and get a can of "Pre-Kleano". It is a wax and silicone remover. Some body shops use it to clean the wax and tar off vehicles before painting them. Use it on a rag, and use your fingernail to remove tar after the pre-kleano softens it.

Re: Tar removal

I detail cars....dont use gas or kerosene.....
use a spray silicone from your hardware store or WD-40 and little elbo grease. Spray it on and let it sit for a bit.
That will do it.
