A wet dryer sheet works very well. I use them on my front bumper if it gets real bad

If you have alot just use bug and tar remover. After you use it make sure to put a new coat of wax back on though.

I have actually found the dryer sheet to work even better than bug and tar remover. It makes a soapy film and has some coarsness to it and just pulls bugs off like nothing.


On a side note 1500 posts!!!!

I think I'll try a test run with the dryer sheets on another car before the Z. Not that doubt you, Dave. I guess I don't have bug problems up here as much as you guys do down there.

The dryer sheets don't scratch???

I would think that if you brush lightly and continuously, then wax the area after the offending material is gone, it would be alright.

I have a bottle of the TW remover myself. I use it only in extreme situations. Since I wash the Z at least once a week, and there aren't serious bug problems here, I don't have to use the spray that much.

Clay bar will remove bugs and thier internals from your paint. Just be sure to use a proper lubricant...such as diluted car wash solution. If you ever drop the clay bar...discard it and use an new piece.

I agree claybar works great. Easiest way to keep it lubed is to take a spray bottle and dilute car wash soap and water and just keep spraying the area that you are claybarring. Takes a little while but the outcome is incredible.

Use kerosene and water...It does several things..1.removes bugs, tar & etc. very easily. 2.Cleans & washes your car. 3.Gives a Super Great shine and protects from rust. (just in case you have a beater car) It does all these steps at one time. Did you ever see a rusted, faded paint fire truck?? I also own a '85 Riviera and the paint job is excellent! drawback..It has a strong odor when applying. They do sell odorless kerosene! Just my opinion.
