ran over a dumb bag..

and obviously melted to my mid pipe so the car has been smelling like burning plastic for a week, but whatever, it's practically almost all off.

what concerns me is that it must have been flapping, and really hot because now I noticed something melted to the side of the car by the front drivers side tire, and the rear passengers side tire. it's like this hard material that won't come off from just scrubbing and washing.. it's like stuck on there. it's rough so i have a feeling it's definitely pieces of that stupid bag!!!

what's the best way to remove it? I'm thinking of trying some bug and tar remover tomorrow. otherwise idk wtf to do. it's really caked on there. grrr

I ran over a plastic bag on my 50 H-D Panhead one time. it was melted all over the front cylinder of the engine. The only way I got it off was to warm the engine back up and rub it off with a stick. Got the big chunks off that way. Then took 100 percent cotton rags and wiped as best I could the rest off. I don't know how your going to get that cr*p off. Consult a painter I guess.

Try Goop yellow can. It takes decals and bumper stickers off with ease without harming the paint! Good luck this should work.

Goop reacts with the glue to soften it. There isn't any glue here. I think heat is going to be your best bet but be VERY careful.

Goo off

I have used this product for years. Pine tar sap parked under the tree for months,no problem no adhesives same with bugs. Burnt rubber lots of it no problem. Products with acetone are adhesive removers. I offered a suggested a product that l have used for years when dealing with detailing vehicles. Like with any chemical use caution. Mask, gloves, soft cleaning cloths,etc.
