    Question Tree Sap!

    Arghhh..........my 360 is covered in tiny spots of tree sap after leaving it out of my garage for an afternoon whilst the Joiner used the garage as his workshop.

    I have given it a hot soapy wash but it hasn't shifted it. You can feel it still stuck to to paintwork. Does anybody know how to get it off without being to rough on the paintwork?

    A clay bar will get rid of that no problem

    Plus when you polish it afterwards the finish will be better than ever

    You can pick up a Meguiars Quick Clay from most Halfords these days.

    Or you can get one mail order from www.speeding.co.uk (Cost 12.99)

    The Zymol equivalent costs around 45 so go figure which one I use

    Read the instructions carefully though and always make sure the panels are well lubricated with the spray that comes with the kit.

    I always break the clay into small pieces(just enough to do one panel) then use a new piece for the next panel. And if you drop it just throw it away immediately. Don't be tempted to scrape the bits off it and re-use it

    Try some auto glym intensive tar remover firts , its about a fiver from halfords , spray it on in the shade and leave it for a few minutes before wiping it off , if this doesnt work then go for the clay bar , the quick detail spray with the megs clay bar is quite good for sap aswell.
