confused Asphalt Removal

Any one have any tips for removal of asphalt from a car without damaging the paint work?

Idiots next door kindly neglected to mention to move our cars where i work and have such suffered a thin layer of asphalt over my car.

Any ideas appreciated!

Oh all all over the car, I use bugoff normally straight on a rag and a slight rub disolves and removes then a bit of a normal wash gets rid of it.

Hasnt damged the paint on the 99 Lancer my wife owns.

Yes I hear it stains into the paint work, not to mention sets hard as well, my wife's car is white, so I can say that this method has left no marks :0)

Well - I have a friend who worked for a while at a bitumen company - they used to get it off their skin with coconut oil of all things. Wouldn't do any harm to try since I'd very much doubt it'd damage paint. Good luck.

Update:

Boral has agreed to detail my car and if it doesn't work they'll take it further, not a bad deal I must say.

Yeah I heard that one too. One of the employee's here where i work, her old man had a trans am, and the only thing he'd use to wash it with was kero.

I can save myself the trouble now though :D
