Pine pitch on my new vehicle
[Return to Topics]

dave    Posted 07-25-2003 at 18:35:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
Just drove home a new vehicle and was dumb enough to park under a branch of a big old white pine.There are about 10 large globs of pitch on the hood.I removed most of the glob with a soft damp cloth while it was still soft. How do I now get it all off and not mess up the new paint?I have been told that the bug and tar type removers will not do it ,any ideas? thanks dave

Zippo lighter fluid...Then wash it and reapply the Rusty Jones stuff that came with the new rig...

First I would try WD40. My wife is convinced that stuff will cure cancer.

NO..They could cure poverty if you made a nickle for every can that has been sold.If you sit a can in a shop someone will spray it out on something that same day.

I have good luck with Tide and water. You will need to wax it when you are done though. It will not hurt the paint.

I thought kerosene was used before but dont let me cause you to ruin your paint.The new paints are diffrent than the old days.

Try some baby or vegetable oil.

If the baby oil or veg. oil doesn't get it, try Greased Lightning. You can find it at Wally World and it is a concentrate, so you'll need a spray bottle for it, also. That stuff cleans just about anything! It cleans rings around 409 or anything else I've ever tried.

Oh,,Now I know why i thought of kerosine.If you saw pine trees with a crosscut saw you use kerosine to keep it from sticking. But I think we called it coal oil. I am not sure if they are the exact same thing.>>>> SALMONEYE???What do you say?Are they the same?
