Hi all,

So I woke up to this today... (see attached.)

I have no idea what the substance is but it's got a kind of a shell formed over it and it's very, very sticky underneath.

I can peel a lot of it off. My question is, how am I to remove the rest of it from the paintwork?

Thanks in advance!

Ive been singing the praises of Ultra grime wipes available from many places. Screw fix do them c. £12 a Pack they are astonishing in getting rid of mastic and even expanding foam etc.. Worth a try. Auto glymm polish is also very good at losing a lot of crap from paint. A clay block and lubricant might also help.

If its still sticky would applying ice cubes first help peeling off the worst? Just thinking it works for chewing gum. Whether it will pull the paint with might be an issue?
