Bumper Bugs

By "bumper bugs" I don't mean huge insects but more looking for advice on getting some very well attached bugs off the front of my facelift 156. The bumper and grill area are peppered with them and despite using very hot water and a sponge I haven't had much joy.

Any ideas would be appreciated...

Re: Bumper Bugs

Try this

Turtle Wax - Bug & Tar Remover

Halfrauds also do a variety of the stuff Maguires is pretty good as well but have had joy from turtle wax products...

Re: Bumper Bugs

Thanks Chris I'll give it a go. I've seen these things at Halfords but never sure if they're really up to the job.

fingers crossed and I'll post some piccies once I've tried it.

Clay it! If it's quite bad with bugs etc then there will probably be plenty more bonded contaniments (fancy way of saying sh#t) that you can't see.If you run your hand over the paintwork and it's sticky/rough then I reckon that's the way ahead plus it's dead easy and you'll be amazed at the results.

Re: Bumper Bugs

Autoglym active insect remover. The TW bug & tar stuff is crap IMHO.

Re: Bumper Bugs

Thanks for the tips - I didn't think of the clay despite using it late last year to bring the paintwork back to life.

I feel a clay and Autoglym combo coming on...
