    house paint on car

    relax not my astra

    the corsa im currently working on has managed to get my next door neighbours house paint specalled all over it, any ideas on how to take it off, so far ive tried autoglyms intense tar remover (did nothing at all)
    then i tried t cut with a bit of elbow grease and some of it came off, but surely there must be an easier way?

    LOL what a plank, i dont think that auto glym tar remover stuff is any good, my missus had loads of little spots of tar all along the side of her car so i went and bought some of that stuff and was out there for hours scrubbing away and all it managed to do was smear it and make it look worse :roll:

    You can use the meguiars body scrub with an electric buffer to make it easier
