Default BUGS!!!!

The only thing wrong with my bonnie is on the plastic front end the paint is a little messed up from bugs not being cleaned off soon enough. Living in the deep south I really need to get the bug problem under control. Anything I can do to prevent further damage other than frequently washing.

My uncle uses this clear plastic stuff that you peel off and you can stick it anywhere on your car you want to. You can't even tell it'* there. It also protects from rock chips. I'll ask him where he got it and what it is if you want.

Use bug and Tar remover to get the crusty stuff off. You may have to let it soak.

For preventive measures, either what'* already been mentioned (I've seen it but never used it), try liquid glass. It'* a polymer, not a wax. And it'* a very tough finish. It makes bug removal much easier. Bugs actually embed themselves in some softer waxes.
