Took a trip to the Berkshires in MA to my daughters college and had agreat trip with my 02 convert. The vette handled beautiful on the winding road leading up the mountains of the Berkshires. When I got home I noticed alot of bug splats, some of them big and they have dried hard on the vette. What can I use to remove without ruining clearcoat. Thanx

I use bug and tar remover by turtlewax. It does not remove your clearcoat, however I am no detailer by any means. Good luck.

Scarinjo.

I have been using Bug and Tar by Turtlewax as well. Works great. Just gotta get a good sponge and rub like crazy! I rinse it off right after.

Regards

I don't know how long they were on, however I usually spray some detail spray right on the splats, let it sit for a minute and then wipe off. They usually come off right away.

If it's really dirty, I would try the bug and tar remover and then wash and then re-apply if necessary.

It will soon be "love bug" season down here in Florida or better known as "keep my vette in the garage" month. Those SOBs are tough to clean off.

Bug & Tar remover will take the wax off, so re-wax when done. Get them off as soon as you can. If left on for a long time and if they bake in the sun they can eat through the clear coat just like bird crap.:bang

Yes, use the Detail spray. On a cool surface let it sit a min. Then wipe those splats off. Works for me every time.
