Re: BUGS

Soak em with hot soapy (Meguiars car wash) water, then use a Mr. Clean Magic
eraser... works like a million bucks!
One thing I do, even with my Libby, is keep some Meguiars quick detail
yaround, When I get home I get them real quick before I go in the house.
Keeps them from turning into concrete.

Anyone recall seeing the commercial where the neighbor guy is wrapping
his car in bubble wrap?

Priority one is don't let the stuff sit any longer than you have to. I
think it's the proteins (just like when someone eggs your car) that's
like acid. Oh, yeah bird droppings, too.

Maybe someone has tried and knows if it works or not on late model
cars, but way back when we were diving Chevy Biscayne's on patrol,
we'd spray furniture polish on the chrome bumpers and nose. Made it a
little slicker, so there was less stick and more sliddddddeeeeee off.
Helped pass the Watch Commanders inspections... at least we believed
it did.

Not 100% but urban legend said it worked so we continued to do it.
It's a trick which was carried over from the armed forces when dorm
dwellers used it on shower stalls, toilets, sinks, etc, to keep water
spots at bay for inspections.

I don't know how it might work today. Maybe someone could call the 800
number on a can and see what the say.

Tried & true, been doing it for years - make a wet paste of baking
soda & water, slop it on, wait 10 minutes, pretty much everything will
rinse off.

Soak it with water long enough will get it off. The longer it sits
onthere, the longer it takes to remove it. Soak with water or water
and soap.

Re: BUGS

Well the magic eraser didn't work, but who knows how long they have been on
there. Next I'll try the baking soda. If that don't work I'll get new pads
for my buffer. I love all the chrome on the old cars.
