Question How Do I Get Rid Of The Flies??

Does anyone know a good way to remove all the grime and flies on the front of a car.
The stuff that car shampoo doesnt remove....it looks awful, but I cant get rid of the grained in dirt and grime.
Any ideas welcome!

There is a stuff called Super Rip, some automotive paint suppliers etc keep it, it is strong so be carefull with it, you can also degrease with it, it isnt the best in the world degreaser but it works. Burns like hell if you get it on you when it is undiluted and dont know its on you.
We use it two remove bugs off work cars (country NSW) and the bosses plane. (not the best for tar, kero best for that, no damage done with kero)

We used to use a product called shift it, seems very similar to the super rip. Now we use come citric natrual product, it isn't as good but aleast it doesnt peel the skin off your fingers.

I am old enough now to know that something that rips the skin off is bad, not long ago I would have said "alright, this stuff going to rip the bastards off". I might try that stuff, probably smell good too. :s2:
