Tar removal

Hello everyone.
There have been several methods of removing the black tar like patches used to stabilize the fiberglass batt insulation between the outer and inner skin of a skoolie. I've read everything from solvent wash to wire brush on a angle grinder. Today I discovered, probably the easiest way to remove it I can think of. I was washing the floors out after removing plywood and screws with my pressure washer. I decided to try stripping off the patches on the side walls. WHOA!! it took it off very nicely and quick!!
Thought I'd pass along the info to help save some time for others. When I remove the metal headliner and insulation, I'll break out the power washer again!!

PPG DX-330 Acryli-Clean removes the tar instantly, almost with one or two wipes.

Pour it into a spray bottle, and get some rags. Spray and wipe. It's not toxic or horrible to be around. It evaporates quickly. It's a little expensive by the gallon but one gallon would easily clean an entire ceiling.
