car clean up.

Is lighter fluid the best option to remove traction compound? The back of my car gets coated after a few runs. I see some local guys using it but there cars are painted with automotive laquer. My car is painted with hobby quality paints, weathered and sealed with testors dullcote so I worry about it damaging paint or eating decals over time. Anyone had any problems or is it pretty safe with all paints? Thanks

60B yes lighter fluid will work and not mess with your clear coat.

Don't soak your body in lighter fluid, put some on a rag and clean up the mess.  You will probably have to rotate the rag a few times.  Once you have tamed the mess, a squirt of Pledge Furniture Polish (also on a rag) applied to the offensive areas will speed up future cleaning.

To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Orange-Glo wood funiture polish is the best stuff I have found for removing traction compound, and it leaves the body nice and shiny. Found in most grocery stores.
