    A dab of smooth peanut butter works great to remove bugs and tar....

    Thats probly because of the 3 coats of "Liquid ICE by Turtle Wax" I applied before you picked up your car!!

    Mine doesn't have a Clear Bra yet and the Bugs just rinse right Off with little or No Scrubbing too!!

    Default Bug and Tar Remover with Wax

    Some of the responses to your question must come from folks who don't live n the country! I live in the South; 16 miles from town and starting in April bugs are a major issue when driving fast (why else do you have a Corvette!)
    I had purchased a product at a car show I used on my truck, wife's car and my street rod. It came in a spray can and was expensive. Only thing I have found that matches it without using a product that rquires washing and waxing after- is Turtle Wax Bug & Tar Remover with Wax (not the pre car wash stuff.) It works for me IF I use it when I come into the garage not wating for the bug juice to etch into the surface! I also use it on my wife’s black Cayenne although it is harder to see bugs on a black car so some of the bugs I remove are no doubt days old. Just spray it on and let it stand for a minute (I wait longer on her car since they may be several days old.) Then remove the bugs and polish with a micro fiber cloth. I do keep a good coat of wax on, especially the front and back of the mirrors. The turtle wax helps provide the extra wax as well. PS I have no affiliation with the company etc, etc!
