It's love bug time

I don't mean Herbie the Volkswagen.

We pulled into a CG in Chattanooga after driving from Mobile. The 5er front cap was almost black as was the grill and bumper of my truck. The windshield was also well splattered but those came off pretty easily. The front cap and front of my truck took almost an hour to be at least presentable though far from their normal sparkling shiny selves. This was my first real experience with those bugs thoughI do recall that my dad had special screens for his car and Rolls International TT for their trips to and fro from Florida. Also, in San Antonio this past weekend, we ran into a snout nosed butterfly invasion so this trip has been steadily cleaning dead bugs off the front of the 5er and TV. Grass hoppers and other bugs in Missour, Kansasi and Colorado were also in abundance.

Get all those bugs off, then give the front a good coat of Rejex! It's amazing how easy they will come off then!

Might just give it a try. Redoing it every 3-4 months and hoping to keep crud off it for 8-12 hours while curing is not making me too happy though
