    Hey I need help....I did a small reverse burn out one day and now in front of my rear driverside door has tar. I guess I should of washed the truck right away, but I didn't. How can I get the tar off?

    Whatever you use, follow up with wax as WD-40 and bug/tar remover will strip the wax off.

    BTW I have used bug & tar remover and it works great.
