I got to thinking that if I put Saran Wrap or similar product on the front end of my car while driving a good distance that when I got there I could just peel it off and have a bug free clean front end. Has any one ever tried this before? What do youins think about this? Harry.

Never tried that before, but it sounds like a good idea!! I don't see why it would not work. I'll have to give it a try and see!! :thumbsup:

I haven't tried that but I have heard that if you cover the area's of the car that you want to keep clean or have clean up easily with a LIGHT coat of vasoline that the bugs, dirt, whatever come off very easily! :D

Isn't that and old drag racers trick? Putting vasoline behind the rear wheel wells?

Cowboy:
You should invent a product, a saran wrap knock off, "Bugs be Gone" car wrap. Engineer it, invent it, become a gazillion aire, and buy a Ford GT and let me drive it (for giving you the name, it's only fair bro). :cool:

Ifn I was a gazillion aire I would just give you the gt. But to make that much $$$$ you would have to come up with a better product name. ;)

3M makes a film that is a little more permanent than one drive, but it works very well, and is pretty unoticable. My uncle had it on a Audi S4 he was driving for a little while (dealer buyback, he works for VW/Audi). he had to point it out to me, but it was all over the front bumper, and a strip on the hood, from the front lip to about 8 inches up. its applied with a heat gun (scary! :eek: ) and is removable. I might look into doing this instead of a Bra for my drive to the 5th, if i do it, we'll have a pretty good atestment to how it works. i like the idea of something not applied/removed with a heat gun, as that sounds bad for the paint, but its becoming more popular. just a couple thoughts on the subject... :thumbsup:

Yeah, Id seen somewhere some kind of clear film to put on a rocker panel or fender. Dont think I want to heat gun that stuff on the front of my car. I think Ill try the throw away clingy wrap for bugs on the front. But I might put some of that 3M on my teeth. :D Be easyer to clean dont you think. Have any of youins used a bra on your front end? Looks like to me that if it wernt tight or stayed on a long time it might rub the paint????

I just thought I would put my .02 in about the bra. I had one on my '94 GT. And where the bra ended on the fenders and hood, it put marks and lines on them. Also I found out if you leave it on for a period of time it will cause your paint to fade. I ended up having to have my front end repainted. I will have to try the saran wrap idea, sounds good.

Now, you guys are getting really silly. I understand the desire to keep the bugs off, but a gorgeous Cobra running down the road wrapped in Sran wrap sounds a little too "redneck" to me!!! :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Works better on lighter colors than dark (you can see the edge if you look hard enough) and is very similar to the product that comes on Porche's, Ferrari's and the like. Thinking about putting it on our front bumper and side view mirrors...there is a guy who does it locally if you are interested.

You were not there. I was going to wrap you to your chair at the club dinner. Where were you at?? Hiding? :D

I did try the clingy wrap on the drive to Nashville. It had some good merit and not so good. I used original Saran Wrap. The good = the front bumper wraping worked rather well , when I got there I just peeled it off along with a bunch of squished bugs. Not so good = At grill opening there were little 1/4" to 1/8" pieces of wrap stuck, apparently from the edge of wrap flapping. Piece on front edge of hood flew off at less than 1 mile. pieces of wrap behind back wheels on fender did not stay on. Mabie I'll try it again and use that super clingy stuff as seen on tv. :cool:

:crazy: I am late on this topic for sure, I am surprised at all that the cling wrap stayed in place. Did you know they now have designer colors too? You could always scrape them bugs off when you get to the show :jason: if you get there early, you can do it before anybody else see's ya doing it. I usually carry some detailer spray and a few towels (or rags) to clean up the bug splatter. they wipe right off with ease when they are fresh :spoke: :dizzy: :barf: :drool: :retard: besides that they make a tastey treat when you get hungry too :banana: I guess that the saran wrap will aid in preserving their flavor:run:
