    Fly Speck Removal

    I am new to this forum and am looking for any suggestions on removing Fly specks from my Ford Ranger pickup. It's a white truck and has been infested with fly specks. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    So after washing, the dead flies don't come off?
    I would use a mild clay kit...pretty sure you can get it off....a good coat of wax afterwards should help repel any more dead flies from sticking....goodluck

    Can also go with a wet Fabric Softener Sheet, or clay, or even may need a paint cleaner if it is more like bug stain left in the paint.

    You can do many things. Start small and work your way up....

    Washing coupled with the wet dryer sheet trick
    Bug/Tar Remover (need to wash anyways before hand)
    APC, APC+, Body Solvent
    Claying
    Buffing

    Every car is different and some go beyond the basics. My Trans am had about 5 years worth of bad etching due to bug stains and when the hood got painted, so did the nose/fenders.

    Thanks for the replies. I will try the wet dryer sheet. This fly poop is some nasty stuff that doesn't seem to want to come off.
