Default Best way to get melted tire rubber off car wo hurtin paint??

Well after I took my car down to burner ally got the tires wet spun em and kept em spinning for along time tires were spinning pretty fast got melted rubber all over my car back to the tail light I tried to rinse it off with the hose /w presurized water head but that didn't work.......so I wana do something that will get it all off without hurting my paint......... wish I wouldn't have spun em so much cause my mud flaps are caked with rubber and rocks melted into the rubber hardcore but I cant change that so what can I do to get that off? think scrubing it would work?

Heat the rubber back up with a blow drier and try to pry it off using some WD-40 and a screwdriver. The crude way but works. Are you ever going to get some pics up of this car, I am stil very interested in what it looks like.

Instead of WalMart hosting them, pay the extra buck or two during developing to get them put on disc. Then you can load 'em up to CarDomain, VillagePhotos or PhotoBucket for free.

Heck, some of us even have sites that could host a few pics....

I think several of us were just waiting to hear this, after all the burnout questions lately. I'd go with the WD-40 suggestion above... I've also heard of using gasoline, but I've never tried it and obviously there are some toxicity and flammability issues there! Good luck... can't wait to see the pics.
