theres some weird yellow crap on my car that won't come off the hood as well, i got it in the summer when i first purchased my car.
my cars nighthawk black pearl... would that be tree sap?! cuz i never knew what it was, and now im living with some weird yellow crap on it. pisses me off everytime.
wooters: probably either tree sap or the gel-glue residue on your car when you first purchased it. when they transfer cars from dealer to dealer, they put a protective film over it and it has that gel-glue on it.
threadstarter: if you're afraid, have someone that knows how to do it to teach you. either that or try using hot water like mentioned. u can try using vegetable oil to loosen up the sap on your car.
I have mine stuck onto my car and I cannot get it off. It seems to be really dry and stuck onto the fender. It doesn't bother me too much, I'd rather not get it off and end up having a bigger problem than that mark. Might rip off some paint. Hopefully, that isn't the case with you.
But yeah, good luck to you. Let us know how it goes.
clay is what your gonna need. and yes you can harm your paint with clay so its not AS EASY as most people make it out to be but it is easy to use. just make sure you use a lot of lubrication, reknead the clay often, and dont press too hard. you will feel the clay picking up the sap and contaminants and as it gets more off, there will be less resistant. keep doing it until no resistance and make sure you then wax your car after you clay it
it's like RIGhT on the hood of my car, about two drops of it... one maybe the size of a pinky, just slightly smaller... and the other just a drop. It's in there pretty good too and it doesn't look like it'll come out. I'll try and take some pictures so you guys can see it. Seriously sucks. =/ Yours is on the fender hm? Damn, at least its not in a really noticeable spot. I guess " clay barring the helll out of tree sapped hood " mission will be coming soon. Will keep you guys posted. =P
Try stoners tarminator spray it on let it sit for about 15, 20 seconds then wipe with towel. Or your rubbing alcohol should disolve it right off. eather way wash the car agin after using one of these methods.
