Before waxing, car must be clean which leads to...

Any one got a good method to get rid of all the suicidal flies etc which embed themselves in the front of the car and dont seem to come off no matter how much water and halfords shampoo is used?

I always seem to end up with quite a few stubborn marks on the paint work and Id prefer to get them all off before waxing.

Any ideas?

noooooo, dont use household products on your cars paintwork

get yourself down to halfords an get some Turtle Wax Bug & Tar Remover, its brilliant

Anything with vinegar in it
Carpet cleaner
Window cleaner
The list goes on. (I used to be a car valeter for BMW)

If you buy these bug remover products and compare the ingredients with household products, they are similar.

this bug remover is nothin like vinegar

it goes onto your car and stays there, its different to anythin ive ever seen before, you squirt it on and it doesnt run or anythin......u leave it a few minutes then buff off, waxes aswell

Try some kitchen towels. Put them against the panels which have bugs on, the spray warm soapy ( car shampoo ) water mixture leave them to soak on the panels for 10 minutes ( while ya have a non alcoholic beer )and Hey Presto theys simply fallin off.

If ya have loads on the bonnet a nice big towel soaked does the trick.

Try some fine grade sand paper you should get a lovely smooth finish and you wont have to worry about scratches any more!

I thinks thats what they use at most Renault dealers!!!!!
