Tar Removal from Paint?

I work and live in two construction zones unfortunately, and consistantly get tar on my car. Some of is is very stubborn to remove, does anyone have a good way to remove it?

Honestly...good old turtle wax bug and tar remover. If that doesn't get it, wd40.

CarPro TRIX Tar and Iron Remover works great in removing tar on your finish and at the same time helps in removing iron or metal shavings that are on you paint.

I use the turtlewax bug & tar too! Its the only turtlewax product I use. The trick is to spray it and let it sit for a couple of min. Its got to do the work. I lay on the ground and spray the entire bottom sides 3-5 inches of my car once every 2 weeks just to keep it clean. Just also make sure to add some protectant after your done a wax over top to help in the future with problems. Good luck!

I am going double Angelo's suggestion of CarPro TRIX. Here is a quick review of it


Not only does CarPro TRIX have powerful tar & bug removing agents but it also will deep clean the paint by removing iron oxide build up that has etched into the paint. Given that you are buy a construction zone this could have a great benefit for your paint system.

Here is another reivew, this time using their IRON X: Deep Clean your Paint with CarPro. IRON X is similar to TRIX but with out the bug & tar agents. It will still give you a good idea on the cleaning ability.
