Road grim
 
Any suggestions to get road grime off the bottom of car. I washed my car today (summit white) and it still had some road crap on bottom. I tried elbow grease, clay bar, tar and bug remover and nothing worked. It's brown and refuses to come off my car. Any ideas???:help::(:help::iono:

Do you have any mineral spirits? It's used as a paint thinner and should work. I'm surprised the tar remover didn't work. WD40 also works great for removing tar, unless something else got on your car.

Maybe the grim reaper can help you.

Sounds like paint to me. Use the suggestions that DangerZL1 said.

Haha road grime, my bad. No those didn't work. As i looked through the garage to see what else i had I found Fast Orange hand cleaner......WOW. Took it right off. So if anyone else needs a fix give it a try sometime.

Just make sure that fast orange doesn't have the grit in it. Being a roofer, I know some of those cleaners have a kind of pumice feel to them to really get the dirt off your hands. This will just scratch the hell out of your clear coat.

Try Goo Gone. Usually works for tar and grime from the road.
