? remove rubber

How can I remove rubber from rear 1/4 ? Last time @ burnout contest it stuck all over and just had it painted OOPS ?

Re: ? remove rubber

I have had great luck with spary on bug and tar remover, I believe it's Turtle wax. Plus it leaves the surface with a film that seems to repel future rubber, a little bit anyway.

Re: ? remove rubber

Yeah, that Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover in the non-aerosol pump bottle is the best. Works great on bugs, sticker residue, etc. etc. and will not harm paint if not rinsed off completely.

Next time before your burnouts, put a coat of wax on the lower quarter panel and don't buff it off.

Re: ? remove rubber

I use Pam non stick cooking spray before I go to the track. It works great, I dont have anything stuck to the quarters exept dust afterward.

Thats it drink your problems away.

But seriously, use clear contact paper, stick it on lower part of the quarter panel, that will get most of the rubber and clean the rest of with wax and grease remover.
