Bug off?

Yup...tis the season....now how do I get the darn things off the facia after they splattered at 80 mph and baked in the hot sun for a week?

Anyone have any tried and true methods?

I have wondered the same thing. Im afraid to buy any bug n tar remover cause they generally contain mineral spirits which will strip your wax off.

Although you wouldn't think somone like Meguiar's would sell something like that. I dont know.

I use the Meguiar's Quik Detailer on most of my bugs and general topping off. Works ok on bugs, much better if you can spray the bug and let it sit a minute to soften. Im usually in to big a hurry.

Here is their bug n tar remover and the quik detailer on one page.

Oh BTW, Im a Zaino user also!

A clay bar is the way to go.
