    Live in Florida, luv bug capital of the world. Bug splatters every time I ride. Is there a save way; process and/or bug remover chemical to use without screwing up the clear or pearl coat?

    I use old dryer sheets that are very wet. Seems to do a nice job without scratching.

    I had seen it on the internet just had to give it a try. Was amazed how well it worked just make sure they are wet. I also use magic erasers that work well, especially on rims for brake dust.

    McKee's bug remover sponge

    I've used it on my clear paint protection film, light and dark paint with no scratches or marring

    on a few trips from Louisiana to Alabama, Houston etc.... I have used Pam, spray a light coat on your front bumper and other areas effected, when you get to your destination, just hit the car wash and they come right off, doesn't effect the paint clear cat either,

    I have also use what they call road wrap. I keep a roll in the trunk for hen I go to the track, I use it on my rear quarter panels where the rubber kicks up. you can get it on either amazon or eBay.


    oh, and bug capital of the world?? right here in Louisiana. get s thick real quick when the are out. twice a year around here too.

    You can also use a dryer sheet dipped in 50/50 witch hazel/water mix. Works amazing!
