Removing road paint splatter on Opti-Coat Pro+

Recommended Posts

What would be recommended way to remove extremely tiny road paint splatter/dots on the front of the car (car treated with Opti-Coat Pro+ 10 months ago) that do not come off with PowerClean, Ferrex, MDR or Tar Remover?

Normally we recommend Optimum TAR - allow it to dwell for an hour +, then pressure wash.  If that doesn't work, other options are WD 40, dwell for 1 - 2 hours, or petroleum jelly for 8-12 hours and pressure wash.  None of those product will remove Opti-Coat Pro+.

Letting Optimum TAR dwell for 1+ hour sound safest so that is what I will try next weekend and report back!

Am wondering what brake cleaner, if used on ceramic coating to remove tar, would do to the coating?   No, I've not tried that (have not used it on brakes either -  yet) !  

There are apparently two kinds of brake cleaner (both hyrdocarbon; one highly flammable ("bomb in a can"), the other non flammable but possibly ozone damaging).
