    Soak it for an hour with Goo Gone, wipe it off. Problem solved.

    ETA: Since you were going to a "Show", it has a super nice coat of fresh wax under there anyway.......right?

    You think you've got work ahead of you? This has to come off both sides before the "Best Appearing" judging at Indy.



    Just bought two large bottle's of Goo Gone!

    When it's this bad, saturate, let it set 10 minutes. Repeat for two hours. Then most of it will come off with the power washer. Once it's manageable (like Dawgs pic), 10-20 minutes should do the trick.

    Do you use something like a plastic razor blade or a bondo spreader to get the pieces the pressure washer won;t get off ?

    Just reading that makes the hairs on my neck stand up! I guess that's one way though, just not on any of my rides (not even the crappy pull truck).

    I dry the entire car except for the rear quarters. By the time I'm done drying, the quarters are usually pretty dry from air (without rubbing). I will soak the area again (with GG) a couple of times. Then I take a terrycloth towel/rag and spray it liberally with GG. Then comes the fun part, you ready? I wrap my index & ring fingers in the rag and go at it in little, 2-3" squares. Up high, where I run into single bits of rubber, I try to lightly dig as much off top as I can, then rub as small as I can until it's gone. It's tedious for sure, but the results are usually scratch free. The amount of surface scratches that a bondo scraper could leave (especially on dark colors) would make you wish you just the left the rubber there. Unless of course you were just aching to do some wet-sanding/buffing. I just want to wax.

    ETA: Materials used...GG, a couple dozen small terry cloths that die here, box of disposable rubber gloves, 2 rolls of Bounty paper towels, & a large trash bag.

    Looks like a narrowed rear end and a mini tubing would end your dillemma for good or at least a large portion of it.
