Hi all,

Hope you can help:

Just cleaned the car following the recent track day and I've noticed quite a few black marks on the paintwork where rubber 'marbles' have bounced off the car and left black lines, mainly on the lower part of the bodywork. :cry:

As it's been zymol'd I did my usual clean water rinse and all the dirt, squashed bugs etc. came off satisfyingly easily. However, I could not shift these black rubber marks.

Any ideas on what I can use to shift 'em without removing the zymol treatments?

Thanks in advance!

John

Use a bit of the HD cleanse. The nice chocolate smelling stuff. :thumbsup:

Re-zymol after you've cleansed.

Thanks y'all,

HD cleanse worked a treat!

I was already in the garage working on this by 6pm so missed the last posts re klay bar.

Once the HD cleanse had done its stuff I re-applied wax, and ended up doing a few more panels than I really needed to. Car looks even more fabulous now :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

By the way, as I happened to be eating a bar of chocolate at the time, I tried rubbing in a tiny bit of neat chocolate in to the black rubber mark with a finger. Guess what? That worked, too!!! Well, worth a try...
