What is the best way to remove them?
I've tried mequires cleaner/wax, goo gone and 3m swirl mark remover w/out any luck.Should I use a cutting compound or 2000 grit wet sand paper?
Anybody else have this problem? Does the exhaust deposits leave a permanant mark?
TIA

I can't believe 3m ssr #39009 did not remove them and clay would. Is the Clear getting stained?

I used a general adhesive remover and it cleaned the effected areas very well.

I followed up with washing the surface...then waxing.

It also helps to keep the car clean as much as possible so deposits don't have a chance to attack the paint.

I agree. The 3M Swirl Mark Remover for dark colored cars is actually pretty abrasive. I don't like to use it on the Viper unless it's a last option for things like those damn exhaust deposits or small scratches.

This is a common problem on the early GTSs, and it is a pain to get off, and sometimes the only resort is a repaint. I would try all the methods suggested, and fortunately it is usually on the lower edge and not that easily seen. We have , in the past, had some so bad , we had to repaint the bumper. Good luck, and try the methods of your fellow Snake brothers, first.
