    Auto glym tar remover! I use it on my silver BM cos i put so much tyre shine on the wheels it usually flicks up onto the body work and can be stubborn to get off but the Auto Glym stuff gets it off easily without damaging the paint

    It's a Gay boy band.























    Just kidding. G3 is a professional cutting compound, you wont find it at Halfords. It is a better version of T-cut basically. But is readily available at a good motor factors that also supply body shop materials i.e paints, fillers, guns and stuff.

    True..............if you can't get G3 and have never used it before, then as G4EDW said- the autoglym would be a safer bet and is easier to get hold of.
