I am trying everything.. what can I do on road trips to keep them from adhering to my paint. I found my first blemish yesterday.. a huge bug hit my front bumper and pealed up the clear coat on impact. ARGGGG!
How do i keep them from sticking..and how do i get them off when they do stick??

i use BUG & TAR remover. after using it a few times it gets really easy to remove the bugs, cause they dont stick as hard

Coat your car in an inch thick layer of vasoline.

Oh..Is that why the stick?? I only go 120 though?? And someone told me to spray the front of the car with PAM before I go on road trips? Is this true??

and im not having much luck with the bug, tar and treesap remover. These bugs are made extra strong or something.

Saran wrap? Transparent teflon? Get a bra for it to put on when you go on trips?

So the PAM nonstick spray is a bad idea??

I don't know if Pam will work or not, but it shouldn't hurt to try it. Let us know what happens.

FWIW, whenever bug remains become problematic, try using a microfiber towel with some isopropyl alcohol. The micro hooks in the microfiber towel will be much better than a cotton towel at removing the remains. The alcohol works well too. You will have to re-wax the area since it will strip off the wax etc. but that's true even if you use bug & tar remover( which is a solvent). Cheers. Cool

3M clear bra. Go to a good installer though.
