"Rub"ber out!

Hey guys...I'm still on an eternal search to find the best product to safely remove the rubber chunks (and marks) from my paint after track events! Does anyone have any suggestions?? Please enlighten me!!

Thanks

I use Oil-Flow safety solvent cleaner by Titan Laboratories and it works very well. Make sure you rinse throughly afterwards. I got it at local speed shop.

I've tried almost all, i.e. Tar remover, WD40, 3M adhesive remover, any and all the compounds from 3M and Mezerna on a Flex, and at the moment, my favorites are Miracle Wash by Amsoil, and even a little bit better than that, Racers Eraser that I've purchased from Wine Country Motorsports. Both take rubber marks off without any rubbing. My most difficult place to remove them is on the clear bra, and if not removed within hours or a day, some rubber marks seem to stain the bra permanently. I've resigned to the fact that I'll have to replace the bra every 2-3 years. Plexus is a nice cleaner for the clear bra, but no match for the ones mentioned above.

brake clean seems to work but you need to re-wax the area after!

Brake-Klean? My experience has been that brakeKlean EATS clearcoat, and don't even think about using it on clear-bra apps... Seriously, this is a very bad recommendation. I know of no waxes or polishes strong enough to combat the acidic nature of this stuff...

The solvent that Premier makes for clear bra's works fairly well...certainly better than goo gone.

take a look at what our customers are able to do with our PF1 TTR

Best wax for clear bra? Also - best product for removing "track smudges"?

TTR works great on clearbra. Takes track rubber right off. It even took out a stain that Plexus never could remove.

Go buy yourself a Porter Cable Rotary Buffer, and orbital will work, but takes more work. Then get yourself some optimum polish or other cleaner/polishing wax.

Use this for these reasons:

1) Safe (actually beneficial) for the paint.
2) Works fast
3) Little elbow grease
4) Because it's polish, makes subsequent removals easier (when cleaned regularly)
5) Works just as good for Clear Bra's (higher speed on the rotary)

I never advocate rubbing all kinds of abrasives, solvents and detergents on the paint.

However I'm a detailer at heart so even small rock chips irk me.


Contrary to popular opinion, as long as you are not a dunce, or use woolly or very abrasive (see orange) pads (except for on clear bra), the rotary will not damage your paint.

Use a white cleaning pad or gray polishing pad, put the rotary at the lowest level and go up a tad for tough spots. The orbital buffer will take some pressure but is only like having super fast wax on/off hands and won't damage paint.

SD-20 is what a lot of teams use. It's pretty much perfect. We use it on our race cars.

here's a link. It works beyond compare

Brake-Kleen is tetrachloroethylene. Acidity is not why it eats through anything. It is just a good solvent, hence its use as a brake parts cleaner. Yeah, it will probably dissolve the clear coat, but not because it is a strong acid or anything.

Premier's TTR works better than anything I've fround on the market for removing rubber marks from clear bra. I was skeptical of their claims but I have to admitt after two track days it removed all the black marks no problem.
