Well...it wasn't the best choice, but i took a 6 hour road trip to LA in my RSX, and now my front bumper and some parts of the hood are covered w/ bug splats. I do have a can of bug/tar remover spray...but my question is, would it be wise to use it on the whole bumper cuz i've only used it once or twice on a small area. Of course i'm going to hose it down immediately, but is there any other ways of removing the splats, like other types of products. I jus dont' wanna harm the paint, or leave any ugly marks. Thanks.

there are many "in a can"iquids out there for bug and tar. I dont know of any that cause damage to paint on cars if they are labelled for that purpose.

I wouldnt suggest any one over the other - but there are names people are very comfortable with - the first that pops into mind in Stoners

but, for that matter, i know people who use wd40 and a soft cloth, spray onto the cloth or paper towel, lay on the spot to saok in - the wipe off with soft cloth. (100% cotton)
-then re-apply finish protection . . .

there slotza stuff for this problem, if you are a little concerned over what you have, just besure to wash it off, and reapply whatever you use to protect the car.

if there are sticky parts - also a claybar will remove them, once the bulk is wiped off. a clay bar will remove your wax also, so again you'll have to re-apply. if by chance you are using a polymer like Zaino, a simple claying wont take it off . . .

hope that helps . .

and next time - dodge the bugs,,, these rsx's move pretty quickly - dont they ? :wavey:
