    Re: Meguiar's Heavy Duty Bug & Tar Remover

    Hey Nick,
    Looks like a great new product! I have found that other Bug and Tar remover products I have used totally remove the wax on the car in the area where it was used. Will the new product do the same and is re-waxing the area where used recommended?

    Thanks,
    Vettefan

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Hi Vettefan,

    Yes, this will knock down quite of bit of either a carnauba of synthetic based wax, so it is recommended to re-apply afterwards.

    The spray on/hose off feature is quite impressive! Of course if needed agitation with a microfiber wash mitt or wiping with a microfiber towel can be used.

    We did several demos of this product for our International Team at SEMA and it's amazing how long the foam clings to the vehicle surface. We've timed it at almost 4 minutes before it starts to shift, which is pretty remarkable, really. It's not thick like shaving cream, but it does leave a pretty dense coating on the vehicle that really hangs on and gives the chemistry time to rehydrate the bugs. Pretty cool to watch it work.
