I had no tar but I spent 3 hours cleaning the exterior of the car today, the white wheels were black and I must have wiped out the entire population of bugs and flies in Europe. they had all welded to the front.

Finally cleaned mine yesterday..

6 hours it took, and that didnt include interior! 3 hours were clay barring it!!! Had to go buy a second new bar too!!! :shock:

The tar is really really bad. 3 washes were needed to get the bugs off the front!

Will do it next weekend with the clay again.. :bigcry:

This was taken at Nice, the car was a lot worse when I got home. I am really glad I meshed my grill, I suspect I saved the rad a few times

Its your own fault for not washing it mid tour! You arrived in good time most days so you haven't really got an excuse! :thumbup:

Think most cars were the same, just that white shows it up more!!

Hard work but worth it when its all finished :-D
