After a HPDE you’ll end up with rubber marks like below on the front of your car. So how do you remove it without removing the ceramic coating or the PPF.

I believe ceramic coat can stand up to a rubber remover. Mother's R3 is decent. I got some in a gift bag and I use it so little that I haven't bothered to try anything else. Most ceramic coats need to be removed mechanically, with a machine polisher - most chemicals can't touch them. I would top it with a ceramic coat maintenance product after using any harsh chemicals though, just to pep up that shine again.

The fastest way I’ve found to take them down is some rubbing compound on a mother’s powerball. I’ve never had luck with the R3, but my friends like it.

CarPro TarX will also remove rubber.

That is interesting I may try that too. The detail shop suggested “Rapid Remover” it’s a adhesive remover www.rapidtac.com. They said it shouldn’t hurt the ceramic coating.

This will remove the ceramic coating.

I use Mother’s R3. For some tougher marks, you might need to let it soak in for a minute. But overall it works well in my experience.
