Any suggestions?
Just bought it and its pretty much covered in the front with tar spots.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

WD-40 will help take it off.

I had a white car that got covered in fresh road tar, black half way up the side. I used diesel fuel and a paint brush to dissolve it. I washed it a few times with Dawn to get the diesel off completely. It was a huge mess but the car was white again. Do it on a gravel drive or somewhere you can control the run off. You should plan to put a coat of wax on when you are done.

Soak it and don't rush the wipe off. Lots of time to soak. WD40, diesel, or Kerosene will cut it. Do not use gasoline.

I have always used Kerosene to remove tar from my cars.
In actual fact all of my cars over the years have had an annual bumper to bumper bath with kerosene.
