Chemical Guys has a dedicated sealant for these clear bra's... For the tire marks and tar I would just use a good tar and bugg remover, also made by Chemical Guys... their products are great and do as advertised, which is not always so with different brands... You guys should also get some Jetseal 109 and 50/50 wax, GREAT STUFF

I have PF1 Film Cleanse. Is the TTR different and/or better?

I use PF1 film cleanse on the entire car right after after washing (before waxing), and to remove bug goo and similar detritus between washes. TTR is used mostly for black marks after tracking that won't come off with routine washing or with PF1. It can be used sparingly and only for spot removal, not like PF1 which can be used like a detail spray on the entire vehicle. TTR works very well.

For clean paint protection film I like using Turtle Wax Ice Liquid Polish. http://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Wax-T-4.../dp/B000DZXIJM

For clear bra guys, you can also use "Plexus".

This is a marine grade cleaner made for plastics. Been around for years, and works great. Can be had at most local marine stores. Most the clear bra installers I've worked with use this stuff.
Here is a photo.

goof off in a spray can - works wonders. i ran over some tire debris and this took everything off easily. diluted isopropropl alcohol also works well in removing contaminants such as tree sap and minor scratches. test it on a small area and wipe off with a lot of detailer spray / water

+1^ ; Isopropyl alcohol in greater than 90% concentration is great for removing scratches and swirls from clear bras too. It may take several applications, but it works. Best,

loworbitsi will become famous soon enough
I was just looking for all this for cleaning track goobers, and some cone marks off my side skirts. I've tried goo gone, bug and tar, and simple green. I might have to try that marine store product. Thanks!

+1 for TTR. Works like a charm. While it might sound funny, I use a wool cloth instead of a microfiber towel as it works in half the time. Before foam pads, there was wool.

When using TTR make sure you wear gloves. It is pretty harsh on your skin.

I've wanted to try out Mother R3, but I can't find it anywhere. I guess I'll have to order it on line and wait.

+1 on Plexus.

Also, I've used Honda motorcycle cleaner/polish on my car's paint and clear bra for many years. Works great, doesn't whiten plastic or rubber, and leaves no film like Plexus tends to. Buy it at any Motorcycle shop.
