BTW, the beading is excellent. I suggest you top it with another layer of collinite before the existing collinite layer wears off!
Yes. I have to wash the car (shampoo) this week after the rains in Chennai, now it is beyond rinseless or waterless wash eligibility.

I just got a bottle of CG Blitz Spray Sealant. Was thinking of applying that and then lap up a coat of 845.

Those two wont bond. Reverse the order. First collinite and then spray sealant after collinite has cured

Ah. Since Klasse SG and CG Blitz both are acrylic - i thought they will be friendly to each other and then top up with 845. I am assuming the 845 would have worn out by now (9+ weeks) and its KSG in action on the body now.

Oh. Did not know that CG blitz was acrylic. Then it would be better to skip collinite and just top it up with the CG blitz. Coz collinite on top of a acrylic spray would not bond well

Proklear has launched their SX Carnauba Spray Wax. If any fellow members happen to try it out, kindly post a brief review here.

Friends, need a help. Recently I was driving through a road which was under construction. After stopping the car I noticed that the car has picked lots of coal tar. Now how can I remove the tar from paint?

You can get and use tarx or tarminator . I have used the former to good results. I think people also use diesel, but ymmv.

Yeah I was aware of Tar X, but when I checked on major online retailers, the minimum package size was 500ml. I think that would be too much. There is another option, WD 40. Has anyone used it..?

The same thing happened to me a few months back. The white ride was literally a plethora of black spots and even the roof was not spared. Bought a small bottle of Zorrik 88; it worked well, but the quantity was not even enough for finishing the hood. Bought half a liter of diesel and it did the job for me. But I did wash the car and re-apply the LSP after that.

That thing doesn't go bad, so it's worth getting 500 ml IMO. I have a 50ml trial pack size, but once I run out of that (pretty soon) I plan to get one too.

The elections are coming up next year in WB, so there's plenty of roads getting tarred

I had CarPro Trix with me and I was quiet happy with it. Somehow it disappeared now, I am not sure where did it vanish. Thanks for the link.

As of now I decided to try WD40 once.

Hi,

I have used WD40 to remove tar marks from all the 4 door of car. I had to spend one can of WD40 and 2 hours since tar marks on my car were stubborn. I did not use tooth brush since I did not want to scratch the surface. Instead I removed tougher stains in phases. Gradually all the marks disappeared.

Regards.

The sooner you remove tar, the easier it is. Waiting a month or two makes it rock hard and it gets awfully hard to remove it. WD40 will do quick job of removing fresh tar. If its only a day or two old, a strong shampoo will remove it too.

What a coincidence. I did the same (WD40 + an old tooth brush) last week and got rid off the tar. The final washing is pending.

I applied WD40 all over car first and waited for some time, then started removing using tooth brush and tissue paper.
