Does anyone know what i can buy and use to take fresh tar/fresh oil off of my bronco? The brown on bottom is now black from the tar, its all over my mirrors, half way up my doors, the chrome trim around the wheel wells, and my chrome exhaust tips are now black. It was early morning and i was going into work and wasnt in the right thinking mind. Road went to one lane cause of them laying down this fresh oil/tar and when i went around the flagger and the first truck, i wasnt thinking and pulled right back into the damn tar. Rode it for a good quarter mile before my brain clicked and told me what a dumbass i was and got back in the other lane. :twak <--me

Anything out there that will take this crap off? It almost feels like the fawking bed liner stuff. :banghead

Most auto stores have bug/tar remover. Just spray it on and leave it soak. WD-40 works well also.

:stupid

Most parts stores have that bug/tar remover. I believe it's geared more towards "tree tar", but it removes asphalt, too :thumbup

Man i hope so. I really want this crap off of my truck. It makes it look like junk.

Jon, imagine your bronco (same color and all) have black tar all over it. The tan is black and the chrome is black (which doesnt bother me cause it actually looks good in black). Man and its my own damn fault. :banghead.

Gas can damage your paint.
Get a good mineral spirits or paint thinner. (Get stuff made for automotive paint though)
Kerosene will work also.
I have tried bug & tar remover, it does work, but for the amount of tar you have on your Bronco...use the paint thinner first, then bug and tar remover, then wax it good.

I have heard that the "claybar" works well, too.

wd-40 works well. spray it on a soft rag, wipe it off trying not to scratch the paint. make sure you wash and wax it afterwards. that stuff eats the wax off too and then you have no protection for your paint.

Go to a paint/detail shop and ask them if they have anything you could buy off of them. Chances are good that they will not only tell what you can use to remove the tar without damaging the finish but they will probabley just give you some. Just remember to bring a jar with you.
