    I used Mothers Clay bar to get the tar and stuff off my truck. Got it at Wally World, really makes it smooth. Just be sure to put a coat of wax on after 'cause it takes it all off.

    To remove bugs and tar I have always used WD-40, never tried the tar and bug remover.
    For you wax buildup, I usually use a toothbrush or soft brush and cut the bristles down so it is reasonalbly stiff, it works but is not really fast.

    I use an old credit card and put a towel around it to get wax out of the edges.
