I am just back from a long motor trip and managed to get some blobs of tar from road repairs on my '94 E320. What is the best way to get these off?
There are blobs both on the paint and on the plastic cladding. Will I need different cleaners for each?
Thanks for your help

John M.

You should only need some patience and some Meguiar's #7 or Wax Shop's "Bug and Tar Remover". Simply spot clean (apply, remove, reapply/re-remove till perfectly clean) When your done cleaning be sure to wax the panel you have been working on with #7 or Bug-n-Tar. (either of those removes all old wax) Meguair's #26, M's Gold Class liquid, or 3M waxes are recommended. (or whatever you have been using) Plastic or sheetmetal should respond about identically. First wash the area (entire car actually) with a good car wash to get dust, grit, the grime you can, etc off. Zymol wash, Meguiar's #00 or M's Gold Class shampoo, usual suspects...should all do well.

Hope that does the trick for ya. You know how to reach us if you need anything else...Lee
