Chris,

The autoglym one I have used to good effect on some of the stubborn ones. You have to leave it on a bit first. Think it is the following (not at shop at mo)

Martin

p.s. autoglym are a franchise around here at least - they delivered for free to me next day as they were quite local.

try peptone or panel wipe, strong stuff so watch the paintwork, never use it on paint the is just sprayed, eg 2-3 weeks

like Steve I've used a citrus based solvent. Citrusol or something it's called. Has worked well so far. I bought it from a local chemical factory. :)

Citrus sol is what my girlfriend uses at work, its a powerful degreaser & solvent, any of those should work.

trying to find some citrusol.
it really is glue from hell at least the concrete is clean where we are doing it.

i think its a stone guard type clear material over some stripes.

Autoglym Tar and Adhesive Remover, not nasty stuff to work with so I use it exclusively now, spray leave for 30 secs, spray again, wait a wee while and scrap off.

Cheers

Rapid Remover (by the Rapid Tac guy) might help.

I've been using Autosmarts tar and Glue remover - along the same lines as the autoglym
