Good luck with that, I hope it's not super glue because then your screwed. If goo gone don't get it try some denatured alcohol (lightly it is a solvent) on it.

try spot remover or using a heat gun to heat it up...

BugTar or GooGone, and a ton of luck!

It's probably dried tree sap. Once the stuff sets it looks like someone put super glue on your car.

Use some Cascade diswashing liquid mixed with hot water. It'll take a while, but it won't take any of the finish off the car like I'm worried Goo Gone might. I've done it many times.

heat it up with a blow dryer or heatgun, then use your finger nail to lift up as much as you can.

After that, use some goo gone or bug and tar remover. thumbsup

if its a silicone type, then heat gun and then clay and then a coat of wax. if its super glue, then best of luck. use something like acethone or something.

i went to the store to get something that will take the crap off, like bug&tar remover,
but i think i'll take away my clear coat in the process so i'm going to go to a detailing shop and get some pro advice,

( i'm actually hoping they will get it off for me for free, cause it's only like 12cm (5") long...) thumbsup
wish me luck... happywink grin
