Open hood and trunk so you will not be bending over hood or trunk area.YOU WILL ELIMINATE BUCKLE SCRATCHES!!!!I've incorporated this in my clean & wax,the first time I cleaned it came to me as I took off my belt.Works good .You'll know what I mean the first time you do it. :yesnod: :cool:

Used to do this with an old E-type...It does work out nice.

Question speeking of cleaning tips...what do you use to get off bug guts? The front of this car says it's going to be ugly. I'm not talking a couple of May flies, I'm talking 'went up north for a quick getaway and I got 1/4 inch of hardened insect inards glued to the bumper'! I've been using a product called USAdvanage mixed 10:1, works great but it does remove wax. I don't know of a product that will remove bug juice and not touch the wax, anyone?

P.S., I don't sell the stuff but the USAdvanage works great at all sorts of greasy clean-ups but it ain't cheap.

Someone told me to try WD-40. I don't know but that may take wax off as well.

I use any good car wash and use a sponge that has a mesh cover on it to remove the bugs. Wash off as soon as possible and keep the front WAXED. It will make them easier to remove.

Use Zaino Z-8 Grand Finale spray seal...bugs just wipe off with a little water and 100% cotton towel...

I have used Simple Green concentrate mixed very strong and it works great.
In south Florida the bugs on the bumper are a constant problem.
Simple Green does work well but a word of caution...used it on my Vette's door panels once (diluted) and it stripped the fake chrome right off the trim!

I spray WD40 liberally, and by the time I get around my vehicle, all tar, and bugs are very loose. Hit it with a high pressure washer, and you're done!

I to raise the hood and trunk - I took PVC and measured to fit and use them as braces/props to give the hood and trunk resistances.
