Need help getting stuff of my paint...

I don't know if it's tree sap or what, but there are these little orange spots all over my paint that I can't get off. I've tried bug/tar remover, scrubbing with soap and water, quick detailer..... any other options?? I know my car sat under some trees for a month or so.

Go to Oreillys and ask them for tree-sap remover.

remember, a little clevage and assage never hurt...in fact, one of the guys up there will probably apply it for you if you run your game right.

I don't think the clay would do much good on that.......sap remover would be better. Clay get's off a shitload of contaminants, but sap isn't one, unless it is very old, and very tiny.

Any luck yet? If not try some acrylic laquer thinner (642 or 105), just be careful. It'll also dry your skin up terribly, so wear some rubber gloves.

I already tried tree sap remover. NOTHING is working. I'm not about to try laquer thinner!

Anything else? I'm probably just going to have to get it wet sanded/buffed.

I use it every day. I have a business called Scratch Repair Specialist. It works great for getting a lot of trash off the paint, overspray, tar, etc. As long as you're careful you will not damage the paint.

If you can feel it when you touch it clay bar should work. If not a good compound a buffer should do it. Good luck
