Within a couple days of my 2019 Scat Pack Shaker I took it in for a PPF wrap. Tired of dealing with swirls, rock chips, you name it. Getting too old to paint correct constantly as OCD as I am.
"Solar Guard 'Pro Shield' Hydro+", self healing, infused layers unlike the sandwiched layers the other products on the market. 10 years warranty [in writing!]
Bug season is upon us. My instructions to wash the car were simple enough.
Rinse, foam gun, gently massage the car properly, rinse, blow dry with a 180mph blower, dry the little remaining water, Spray and wipe [one towel deal] some "Lucas Spray Wax" [even smells great!
Well, I live a mile away from the start of many Mountain road loops, a 100 miles is close to a pound of bugs... and where do they end their lives for their next journey? Front bumper.
I am "supposed to" remove those bugs ASAP but of course I don't while slowly realizing that those bug adhere much more to the PPF than they would to unprotected clear coat. They are like "glued" and was also told that the bird sized ones will make an imprint of their generous body.
I did not want to start getting into the variety of chemicals available and labeled "Bug and Tar remover". I tried hot water with my soap and it was a no go until I read somewhere on a "PPF Forum" about using a lubricant with "blue clay". Something I am familiar with which is the first step of a paint correction. I have "yellow clay" and so I ordered the "blue clay" which is gentler. Kind of like different grits of a sandpaper.
Using Griot's "Speed Shine" as a lubricant [you can also use plain soapy water], concentrating on small areas of the front bumper... the bugs are gone and the PPF has not lost its characteristics.
Big relief. I am going to try to get to those bugs more often before they turn into mummies, but, I thought I would share this on my end "discovery"....
Always "research and more research"!
