Default Yellow bug "goop"?

Today while washing my white Ranger Sport, the front was covered in that summertime bug "goop". Most of it came off quite easily, but there are a few yellow bug "goop" spots that my bug remover will not remove. Any ideas as to how to get this stuff off because it really shows up on my white paint job. My wife does not really notice it, but I am very anal about the front of my Ranger being spotless after I spend an hour washing it! Thanks.

I dont know what type of bugs you have over there lol, but when I had my white Grand Am I just used by dad pressure washer and some elbow grease to remove those hard to remove bug smears.

use your fingernail to lift it off then follow up with detailer spray or whatever you use.

Any auto dept. or Auto store will have a product called Bug N Tar Remover (which is manufactured by Turtle Wax). It comes in a white spray can with a green lid and works better than some of the other junk out there.

Clay bar. That 'goop' stuff actually etches itself into the clear and stains it. Clay bar will take that right out. Don't forget to wax the spot you clay.
