Now, say you're driving your car, and you go through a construction site, or just everyday driving. You're going to collect a lot of debris that's on the ground, and your car is going to suffer for it, if you don't take care of it. My name is Johnny. I'm from Johnny V's Mobile Detailing, right here in St. Petersburg, Florida, and I'm going to show you how to get some road tar off your car's paint. Now, in order to get road grime or tar off your car's paint, there's a number of different products you can use. If you want to check in your house, you can check for some, maybe Soft Scrub. You can take some gasoline, put it in a spray bottle, and spray that on. You can take some WD-40, spray that on there a little bit. Leave it on for about half an hour, or I've even heard that people have used peanut butter, and the peanut oil seems to break down everything that's on there, and you just leave that on for about thirty minutes, and then wipe it clean, or if you're going to go to your auto parts store, you're going to want to get some solvent that's specifically made for getting tar off a car's paint job, so I've got my favorite solvent here in the rag, and I'm just going to go rub in circles, like this. Maybe put a little elbow grease in it, that stuff can get real sticky. You're going to want to rub in circles like this, give it a little bit of elbow grease. Make sure you rub it in there real good, always going in circles. Well, that's it. I'm Johnny, from Johnny's Mobile Detailing Business, and always remember, drive clean.
