Hi all.

I was cleaning my Accord the other day and I noticed that most of the lower half from the B pillar is covered in small tar spots about pin head size. What product in the UK is advisable to use to remove them? and then after wash and polish as normal?

I use Tarminator, its a gel type tar remover, I find these better because you can apply and leave to soak, then wash. Scrubbing tar spots off will cause scratches because tar holds grit and that is abrasive when scrubbed with petrol on a rag.
Do not use on tarmac drives only concrete.

Rag soaked in white spirits has always worked for me.No effort just gently wipe tar spots off then a bucket of soapy water to rinse down.

I used white spirits on a previous car and whilst it removed the tar spots effortlessly I noticed that it tarnished the laquer and removed the sheen - beware
