strange inside panel coating

I have this black hard coating on the inside of the quarter panels in the trunk and on the wheel wells, as well as inside the wheel wells. I don't know what it is or how to remove it. Does anyone know what it could be?





It's also in the footwells and coating the underside of the driveline tunnel as far as I can tell. I want to get rid of it but it's tough stuff. Sanding doesn't work, just gums up the sand paper.

Help!!

I had that stuff on y truck when i was striping it. I just used a 2inch putty knife and scraped most of it off then striped it.

Almost forgot I see the pictures.

If you have a gas torch, you can try heating it up and seeing if it makes it easier to scrape the stuff off.

It is undercoating.
It takes Heat, Scraping and tons of patience to remove it.

Grrrrrr

That's what I thought. What a pain in the *&#. As if this car wasn't taking long enough to strip.

that's tar, we just finished 3 cars and I found the best way to get it off is oven cleaner, the longer you let it sit and the heavier you put it on the better.

You can use an air chisel to vibrate it off. Careful not to use to much pressure while chiseling so as not to damage the panel. be extra careful if you are using it on the inside of a quarter panel or some other exterior panel. It works great for doing the under side and inside the wheel wells.
