Tyre marks removal

9 posts in this topic

Hi

The frontal of my car has quite a few black tyre rubber marks from the numerous track days. What cleaner can you recommend?

Thanks

Tom

Removing dried -on rubber

Use a safe solvent to remove burned on rubber; that does not contain any harmful components (heptanes or xylene or hydrocarbon aliphatic solvents; Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover, Stoner™ Tarminator, or Simple Green® Aircraft & Precision Cleaner that simply emulsifies and dissolves the rubber, then use a plastic razor blade to remove debris.

If this does not remove the rubber try a 3M Eraser wheel – this 4-inch diameter wheel is made from a soft white polymer, which looks and feels like rubber. 3M Stripe and Decal Remover

I saw this guy doing a demonstration at a car show using Mer Ultimate polish... he said it could clean and polish anything and everything... so I'd use that if I were you

That's the one that makes your car fireproof as well isn't it?

Yup - chuck a load of lighter fluid or petrol on your car, set light to it and then just polish away +++

Yes, apparently they used it in all the Knight Rider episodes to help protect Kitt from bullet and explosive damage too... the guy had a headset and everything, so I'm sure it must be true...
