I have yet to use Vaseline on my car, but I DID use the spray Pam on my R1 and helmet! Coming from a girlz perspective…. Works wonders!!!!!Back in my drag racing days I'd put a thin coat of Vaseline on the rear quarter panel behind the slicks to make removing the rubber easier. Next week I'm off on a road trip on which I'll encounter lots of bugs. Wondering if any of you have done the same on the front of your cars.
