Tar Remover

As with all tar removal products they say not to use on smart repairs, wheel refurb etc, if a customer does not know if his vehicle has had these done what is the best approach or is there an alternative to tar remover,
Thanks
Rob

Yes you could use a clay bar.

Interesting question. On my own car, my instinct would be to still use the tar remover, but in moderation and being very careful not to leave it too long. I suppose it depends on the quality of the repair. As long as it has a good clear coat and has had time to cure... I really can't see what the problem would be.

On a car which didn't belong to me though, then I might play it safe.... I probably would just use a bug and grime remover, clay and then use something like a good paint cleaner.
