I noticed something on my hood yesterday afternoon and it looks like a blob of tar...
I tried picking at it this morning and it was hard an super sticky. Had all kinds of hell trying to get it off my fingers.
How can I get this nasty stuff off the paint without damaging the finish???

Thanks!

Any solvent based fluid, like kerosene or go to your local parts store and see hat they have,After removing us a small amount of a light rubbing compound then wax it.

3M Bug, Tar and Adesive Remover has worked well for me.

Got to agree penetrating fluid such as w.d.40 should work fine, if it is only remnant staining a cleaner type wax may do the trick.
Please not "penetrating" fluid "not penetration" fluid such as gin or rum......

Well, the WD40 didn't work. I didn't let it sit for a long time but long enough to make a difference and it didn't help.
How long can WD40 remain on the paint without damaging the surface?
I really don't want to have to get into compounding.
Needless to say, I'm pretty pissed off about this...

You may be screwed if its a single stage (non clear coat) if I'm right the best way will be compound with light abrasive (small circles, don't dig in hard, let the product work) then a finishing product, you may try a wax and grease remover ... I would hit up a body shop - after 15 years of auto body experience, I'd say they would do it for good customer relations ... Or some brewski's good luck
