What's the best (safest) way to remove bug debris from my new, clean TM3?
Get a quick detailer spray
I use Sonax Insect Remover.
dryer sheet and water and use a clay bar after...
You can also do this with a microfiber towel using the same solution in the bottle. Just like everything else in life, use a lot of the lubricant and the bugs will all come off... (man that sounds weird)....
If you just soak a microfibre towel and soak the bug for a fairly short time it wipes off fairly easily.
At least that has worked well for me. Please note, I have a ceramic coat which may make it easier.
I prepare and carry a 7:1 solution of distilled water and ONR Blue (Optimum No Rinse without the wax that the green variant has) in a repurposed pint spray bottle.
And a supply of microfiber shop towels.
Good for any surface.
Remember - linear wipes - not circular, and lightly. Pre-spraying large deposits tends to help.
Burning bug splat with this may do the trick. Elon made it, so it must be intended for this purpose.
My body shop guy recommended Purple Power from the parts store. Suggested diluting it. I spray the bugs before I put soap on the car. They wipe off pretty easily.
His goal is usually to take wax/polish off (or simply not a consideration) so we'll see if that's the downside. I just waxed it for the first time yesterday.
Then again, the bugs don't stick as bad to wax so maybe it won't be necessary now.
