Help! Advice needed.

Post by M135iTom » Thu Aug 02, 2018 6:28 pm

Hey All!

Found this mark on my bonnet today, it’s sticky. Gave the car a pressure wash earlier and it hasn’t touched it.
Have just tried rubbing it with hot soapy water and a cloth (hence why it’s turned a bit blue) and it still isn’t coming off.

Anyone got any advice how to remove it, I’m freaking out a little!

Thanks

Got any TarDis? Or a dab of petrol from the lawnmower? Or WD40?

Thanks!
Tried a bit of brake and clutch fluid which has worked a treat.
Cheers for the quick response 👍

Make sure you flush that well afterwards, brake fluid can be quite harsh on paint.
