    Parked under a sap-bleeding pine tree this weekend and got the stuff all over. Does anybody know what takes this stuff off and not the paint?

    I too park my daily driver underneath a sap-bleeding pine tree. Once a week on my way home from work I stop at one of those diy car wash places w/ the high power sprayers. Put that baby on Wash (or Soap) and that high power sprayer w/ the soap mixtures takes care of it no problemo. Then rinse w/ high power water setting.

    There is this stuff called sea-foam bug and sap remover. Check your local Naylors or Karparts or A&W or whatever you got. I worked at a Napa and the sea-foam is great.

    Any automotive refinish supplier will have an aray of degreasers,for both chemical based and water based, I have found that the "sikkens" brand waterbased degreaser works great for sap, Just dont let the sap set on the surface to long It will bite into the clear cloat.

    Turtle Wax Tar and Bug remover. You can buy it just about any place that sells any kind of automotive products. It's with the waxes and polishes. Walmart and places like that even have it. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif But it smells like it's just mineral spirits in a different can. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Any Pep Girls or Kragen's carries a product called "Goof-Off" works good. Don't let it sit on the paint too long,cause it might remove the paint also! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I have found that WD-40 works the best for me.
