    They were fixing the roads today and I drove through some hot asphalt and road patch. Luckily, I didn't get any on the paint, but I did get a bunch on my tires and inside the wheelwells.

    I don't really care about the tires, it'll just wear off of them, but what would you suggest to get the road patch off the inside of the wells and the mudflaps (black plastic)? I was just going to use some bug & tar remover, but I decided to ask for suggestions, it's too dark out now anyway.

    Spray the fenderwells down with WD-40 and then use a high pressure sprayer to rinse them out.

    Cool. I'll try it as soon as I can. I won't be driving my car again until the 24th, though.

    Well, I washed my car today and found out that I got some on my paint, had to clay to get it off, then re-wax the clayed area. :(
