    stupid splattered bugs...

    Hi guys!

    would any of you happen to have any good advice/methods for keeping the front of the car clear from all the junk that splatters and collects on it? It seems that after driving out in the country for awhile.. it gets quite a fair collection. Without wanting to damage the paint.. any good ideas how to clean it? Scrubbing with a fair bit of force when washing the car doesnt seem to do a whole ton.

    Thanks!

    I know that a place called brown bear up here in washington does really well... it has a high pressure washing gun... kind of like a weak pressure washer... does the trick perfectly especially after driving 1300 miles from seattle to wyoming back up through montana and idaho and back... =)

    Give it a good cleaning. Clay bar. Wax. Wax. More wax. The wax won't keep the bugs from going kamakazi on your front end, but it will make washing them off easier. Good luck.

    Clean the car really good and claybar... I found that claybar is the easiest once you get all the big chunks and all you have is the dryed up guts that are cemented in to the paint. It takes maybe 2-3 mins per sq ft to clean up and it will look like new. make sure you wax!
