BUGS!

I drove my car to Tennessee and the front is covered i bugs. Ive tried every bug remover i can find nothing works. They took some of the bugs off but not all. Any ideas on how to get the rest of the bug guts off?

Re: BUGS!

i've found compound to work really well with bugs, road grease, and road oil.i'm so sick of that road oil...lol it may take some of the wax off, but it's better than scratching your paint all to heck.

Re: BUGS!

i have no issue getting bugs off. The key is keeping the car coated with wax or what ever you use so they dont stick. I also make SURE they come off that day... do not let them sit in the sun or you are screwed.

Re: BUGS!

I need a new bumper. I still cant get them all off. Anyone know of a good place to get a front bumper. I was thinking an 03-04 cobra bumper. But not quite sure. Any input would be great. Thanks for the help.
And a hood scope now that i think about it.

Re: BUGS!

Dude a clay bar will take them off regardless of how long theyve been on there. Just use plenty of lube and rub hard.

Re: BUGS!

Rain-X will take them off since its alcohol based, which is probably why WD-40 works also. I usually just spray it on a rag, and rub the rag on the bugs until they are gone, then wipe the Rain-X off with a dry, clean rag.

Re: BUGS!

A clay bar cant remove clear coat and paint thats already been removed due to acid from the bug eating away at it
