On my driver's side door along near the bottom of the door are very thin tar strips that are noticeable only if you look closely. Must've gotten stuck to the car by me going over a freshly paves road. My question is, what will take this off without damaging the paint to the car. At first I thought it was very thick dirt or a key but to no avail was able to remove the defect through washing. I havent really experimented with anything to remove the tar and was wondering was would get it off.

Any over the counter bug & tar remover will do the trick. Once cleaned up be sure to rewax that area.

Any silicone based tar remover with no extra solvents would cause no damage. Basically what it does it makes it slippery enough to remove, a good wash should remove the residual silicone.

Thanks for the replies.... also, I've heard that gasoline or kerosene, one or the other removes something from cars without damaging the paint of the car. Would this be in the case of a different paint on the car say spray paint, or can this also apply to tar swirls? Just curious :dunno:

I would not recommend gasoline anywhere near paint...
I remember some miracle product that RTF discovered...someone in that thread said it had kerosene? Maybe that might make sense...
