Any good way to get paint off the tires??? And what emblem should I go with on the back the fat original 944 S in black or silver....or the skinny 944 S 2 emblem and just remove the 2....I think the black emblems would look the best but I also like the chrome emblems porsche puts on all the new cars....any suggestions????

Goo Gone makes a paint remover (latex, enamel, acrylic). Should the paint be spray paint, latex paint, acrylic and aerosol paint the company recommends Graffiti Remover. Both are supposed to be safe on rubber. No affiliation.

For a more natural approach, baking soda and lemon juice should do the trick. If not, you can coat the affected area with vegetable oil and wait a few hours. This approach will require some scrubbing however. I'm sure it all depends on what kind of paint was used.

Off the tires, a scotchbrite pad is a good option.

Your car Looks nice. Just getting into the 944 scene and my 83 na is the same color.

A product for removing sticky stuff is Ronsinol lighter fluid, with a scotch brite pad.

I’ve seen several references to Lindsay Racing on this forum... fuel bars (?)and more. I’ll go check it out. Again, congrats on your improvements, PHillary!
