Snow foam + Tar Remover

Guys

Not sure what to search for, but I am after a snow foam combined with Tar remover/black spots. Is this possible or do you do this in 2 different stages?

And whats best but not too expensive on spray on tar remover?

Thanks
Simon

I've not heard of this being a product...

Tar remover - there are lots of options, personally I've used AG Tar remover and it works a treat, I found best way is to apply to small microfibre applicator pad or cotton pad (make up type) and then wipe over tar spot / area, leave for few minutes, repeat and it disappears

Thanks Andy, I was hoping their was a product that kind of combines both, then let dwell then jet wash off. Or at least spray some contaminate remover and let it dwell and see it working then foam. Hope that makes sense.

I dont think so.

Tar removers are harsh solvents that you wouldn't want to spray all over your car, imagine what it would do to rubber and plastic parts after prolonged dwell time.

I would not want to use this even if such a thing existed!

There plenty of good tar removers out there and most can be applied either via a pad/cloth or a sprayer for larger areas of contamination. Some of the well known ones are AG tar remover, AS Tardis and AF Obliterate.

One thing to note if you want to use them with a trigger spray, they are harsh chemicals and they will eat through even a chem-resistant trigger eventually, so best to not leave the trigger on the bottle after use but remove it and rinse it out. Just use a standard cap on the bottle when in storage.

Even though I heard that new car rust protection should resist Tar remover better, it's nothing I recommend spraying all over the car regularly.

Turtle Wax Extreme Prewash-T followed by your favorite snowfoam. Spray the snowfoam directly on top of the tar remover after letting it dwell for a while. Squeaky clean and good base to start with. I will be doing a review of this once the weather gets warmer.

I've been using this combo in the salty, tar infested winter months of Sweden for years now. No effect on plastics and paintjob.

Random shout but for smaller dots Meguiars Wash Plus with micro abrasives and some tar removing ability has been muted around here and YT.

It is a marmite product but it has it's market place

I use 2 different products as said above I wouldnt want a tar remover all over my motors (Trim staining possible)
