Pine tree pitch battle..best solution

Recommended Posts

Used retired credit card edge to scrap off the majority then 91% isopropyl which works well but leaves a slight residue. Hit it with some quick auto spray wax to restore shine. Thinking there has to be a better way;)

I retired from a Ford assembly plant where our cars became speckled with particles of paint overspray, we used that same method with good results.

I usually use WD-40 on road tar, glue, etc.  Its fairly safe on paint.  You will have to wash it off and wax the area afterwards, but it might be a little bit better.

Park farther away from the Pine Tree?

We have a large pine tree in our front yard.  Wife and I both take our vehicles to a local car wash.  $20.00, they wash, wax and detail.  Pine tar doesn't seem to be a problem.

Just remove the large spots with paper or anything really, the rest comes off with a pre-wash degreaser.

You can use denatured alcohol. Spray the spot and wait for a few seconds before using an MF towel.
