Re: Removing Bug Spots

Along with the Iron-X use a clay bar to help pull the contaminants out.

Re: Removing Bug Spots

That does look like bug splatter. If left long enough, it will etch into your paint -- which is probably the case here. I'd clay first, and then try Megs Ultimate Compound. Those products are easily attainable OTC. If they don't do anything, I doubt IronX will either.

What he said....Works well especially if you spray on & let soak for a while before wiping off.

Re: Removing Bug Spots

I used a clay bar for the first time last week and that's when I noticed the orange / yellow spots. Claying did not remove them. I guess I'll try some of these suggestions. My first thought was rust, but then I saw it on the plastic parts as well.

Interesting. No negative effects on the paintwork??

Trust me on this... you can find rust from environmental fallout on plastic as easily as you'll find it on paint.
