They will flap like crazy and wear away the paint.[/QUOTE]

I have clear-bra on the car now so I should be good but, I will still do so.

if you have a clear bra, put a fresh coat of polish on it and spray them off at the carwash. There's one right down the road from the host hotel.

Leaning to baby oil, if it's safe on a baby butt is safe on the car!

You got me pegged, but you forgot good looking (really really good looking) and modest

BTW - I am a huge fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson.

OP - a clear bra is really easy to wipe clean, and worth the investment.

We bought a roll of the white wrap you see the Audi's transported with. It's takes at least 2 people to get it on right correctly and takes a while.


.....what trailer?

I have a clear bra so I'll be laying on the wax and bringing a dryer sheet. If you've not tried this before, a wet dryer sheet will bring the splattered bugs right off.

If you don't have clear bra, this can scratch the paint...

Ill have to ask my father where he got it. Hopefully he will remember.

I already have 2 cars coming in that thing so unless you have a golf cart you're S.O.L.!!!

Bugs are the least of your concerns... With no bra or clear bra stone chips is what I'd be worried about.... they don't spray/scrub off when you get there. Take your touch up paint with ya....

If bugs dry, you can use this before washing:
