No but get you some Bugslide it works miracles. It's like a polish but I totally wipes off all bugs very very easy! After it leaves like a wax type coating that after a road trip the bugs you collect come right off. I started using it on my HD and then my vehicles it works better than anything I've ever used!

Went to a local car show on Sunday and there was a Armor All display, they did a demo on the clear guard, I got a free can and let's see what happens
He had a video of his wife's accord and his 84 Camaro and what he did to both cars
After a night at the track, he had sprayed the rear quarters after numerous burn outs and blasts down the track, he knocked off the big chunks with a rag and it peeled right off
I'll let ya know how it goes gonna apply early Thursday morning and head to Nashville for my cousins wedding and we taking the ZL1 whoop whoop
More later

When we would go on a road trip with our Harley's, we would spray pledge dusting spray on the front of the bikes. Bugs washed right off. Have not used it on the Camaro, but should work. I just use Turtle Wax Ice now. Works pretty good.

I use Adams Quick Sealant. It works really well. Check out the video in the 1st post of this thread.

An old trick was to use Zaino Z5. Put it on but don't wipe it off. When you get to destination, wipe it off and bugs come with it.

I just make sure I have a fresh coat of Zaino and some Z6 with water. I just got back from Sturgis and each washing, the bogs came right off. 4600 miles of driving and no problem getting bugs off.

Nova350 I had my ZL1 treated by a company called Perma Finish just east of the ATL and it has been great. Bugs come off very easy and it gives my Victory Red a much deeper shine than regular wax and it is garanteed that you don't have to wax for 7 years.....
