Pretty sure it was them love bugs that splattered & dried on my F250's hood, sure ain't no road tar :mad:
I scrubbed with soap & water, then mineral spirits with a rag, then mineral spirits with green scotchbrite. Looks like I'm gonna need to cut it with compound & a buffer. Not having a buffer is the downside, off to the harbor freight website... :laugh:

Yeah, that'd work pretty good, a good coat of wax mighta helped too. I'd just been usin & abusin this poor ol truck, but after gettin new tires on the front I started looking at how much I'd been neglecting it. Just cleaning the interior took the better part of a day and 12 pack :laugh:

here is how ya get rid of them..........go to dollar general.....get a bottle of L.A. totally awesome.....it is in a spray bottle....yellow liquid. then get you some dryer sheets. spray the bugs, let it set a bit then use the dryer sheets to rub them off .......then rinse with garden hose.........repeat on the couple of tougher ones........use it all the time on my truck and bike......great stuff!!!
