Tar Remover

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a suggestion for a good product to remove tar and bugs without damaging the finish. Also has anyone ever run their Oliver through a "touchless" truck wash?

 

Thanks...Leigh

We use Thetford Black Streak & Bug remover for RV gelcoat, fiberglass, and painted aluminum. OK to use around windows or decals, too. Buy it at the local Walmart. I'm in a habit of cleaning bugs, stains, and tar off of the front of the camper & TV with a soft cloth and bug/tar remover at the end of each travel day.

Use bug and tar remover by Turtle Wax for our pick up trucks.

Use Plexus to clean plastic windscreens on motorcycles, helmets, and airplanes:

Always wash the Ollie at home with fiberglass boat wash.

Leigh,

 

After you get the bugs/tar off, a good coat of wax will help you the next time you have to remove "stuff".

 

I agree with rideand fly - plexus is great for anything plastic.

I use WD 40 to lift the bug debris initially, but just soaking the area in question with a wet towel laid over the area for several hours will also do wonders.  I do this on my motorcycle fairing and screen.  On the airplane I just soak the windshield with anything liquid then use Plexus.  As mentioned use a thick coat of Plexus, regular car wax, or PlastiX product to serve as a polish.  I never try just washing them away, its futile.
