Removing sap from car.

I had my car washed really well today and was still unable to get the little sap marks on my Camaro. They are on the windshield, the hood, roof and on the driver side behind the door. Any one else had these, I think they are coming from the tree near my drive way. Anything any one suggests?

Thanks in advance.

Order: 2010 1LT Camaro Inferno Orange with Black Rally Strips

Goo Gone would definitely work. I know the feeling.

clay bar

be sure to add some wax afterward to protect the paint because clay bar will remove any existing wax on the surface.

Yup! That's what I use. Be patient and don't rub too hard.

I know for sure that a razor blade does NOT work......I'd go with the clay bar, I've had more success with that.

Removing "sap" from car? Is that a reference to the driver or someone inside the car or some tree residue from the outside???
