After a week or so of rain, me going to and from work I finally got the chance to take the dub to the wash. Pulled up the car wash bay and noticed that the front end needed special attention. TONS of bugs piled up and beaten into the car from driving to and from.
Washed and rinsed the car and finally started to dry and low and behold the bugs remained!!!!!! Sat there at the lot using adhesive/bug remover and lots of elbow grease, then using a bug scraper sponge (the ones with the netting). Didn't get me anywhere after all that!!!!
Sitting in my driveway I was looking at it, tried some more with the bug juice stuff and finally got fed up. Worried about the finish looking really bad, I used 3M Finish restorer to kinda shine her back up thinking to keep it at least looking good from a distance till I got to my boy's body shop. THAT STUFF (3M FINISH RESTORER) TOOK OFF ALL THE BUG CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To the boys working at that company.........THANK YOU!!!!!!

PS-taking pics after I fully wax that entire car with that stuff tommorrow night!!!!!!!!

An easier way to take bugs of is with panty hose and regular car wash soap. It works like a charm! I drove my car from VA to CA, could you imagine bug build up from Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico!! That was nasty. I stopped in Roswell and went to a DIY wash station at 1 in the morning to clean it I was was so fed up

I also found out that wd40 on the dead bugs works too!After wards just throw some wax back on and you are as good as new!
