PD Thanks for the links. I'guess I'll have to take it to a professional paintshop.

2 weeks did that? sounds like a ton of sap or something. Def. wash (with dawn dishsoap to strip wax), claybar, and then polish before waxing if the clay doesnt get it out, if you want nu finish they sell it at some walgreens for pretty cheap.

keep us posted!

My entire car looks like that. Of course, that's because it's a '98 and I don't think it was washed for years at a time. :P

try the claybar after a good wash. if it works you'll notice. then use some cutting polish. something fairly strong and if by hand youll need a lot of elbow grease and time.
