Re: Artilary fungus on paint

I hate that crap! I didn't know it was a "fungus". I get that on my vinyl siding and occassionally on my Jeep. I keep it in the garage though, so it's rare that they get on the paint. The only way is to keep your junk well protected with a coat of wax. They come right off of a waxed surface. Otherwise, you're likely going to have to clay bar them off, and follow with a proper polish and sealant. I've had excellent results with Meguiars Ultimate line of compound, polish, and wax. Nothing sticks to my paint now. Even tar comes off with just a good washing. Those little mothereffers get on the glass too and I've had to razor blade them off. The only thing that works to keep them easy to remove on glass is Rain-X.

MOTHERFUNGERS!!!!!

Solution for vinyl siding is a scotch-brite pad and simple green BTW....
