ok i have a new 2006 trailblazer ss and i had been going out of town the past three weekends and there were a ridiculous amount of bugs all over the front end and i washed the truck last and it seems that the bug splatter made stains all over the front end ......what should i do?
for real though, i would do some serious scrubbing with good ole soap and water, then use stoner tarminator (http://www.tarminator.com/) - available at wal-mart, etc... anything left might be loosened well enough for a claybar.
I've found that using a quick detailer between waxes really helps prevent them from becoming a problem. It keeps the surface slick and protected, so bugs become more of a wipe off than a scrub off. Remember, it doesn't take long at all for bird poop to etch, so when it happens, act fast.
Most bug and tar removers also remove wax, so I would at least recommend re-waxing the area. QD sprays do an excellent job of "refreshing" an existing wax/sealant, but are a poor substitute for applying a good layer of wax/sealant.
on some tough bugs that i have gotten on my car (usually the ones hit at ludacris speed) that give me a hard time, i have found that goo gone gel worlks awesome. it does however, like the bug and tar remover take off wax, so go back over the area when your done.
