One time I forgot to put my car cover on, and found half-dollar sized globs of sap with pine needles stuck in it all over my hood. I grabbed a can of Axe from my glove box, gave it a good soaking, and it came off like butter, literally.

    What would posses you to spray axe on you car? Would have sucked if it fked up your paint.

    +1 WD-40 is magic in a spray can!

    The fact that Axe is mostly alcohol and water is what posessed me to spray it on my car.I tested it on a painted portion of the inner door sill first to make sure it wouldnt dull, fade, or eat away at the clearcoat.

    List of Ingredients in a can of Axe:
    SD Alcohol 40-B (Alcohol Denat.), Butane, Hydrofluorocarbon 152A, Fragrance (Parfum), Isopropyl Myristate.

    well the very second i put hand sanitizer on a qtip and applied it to a drop of sap, it instantly turned back to its goey form and i could scrape it up! unfortunatly it left white fade marks everywhere i did it im guessing from the wax or clear coat, but after some scrubbing and fingernail scraping most of it came off. gunna wash it a few more times then get it polished/waxed but it looks atleasy 80% better now!

    thanks for all the suggestions!

    Bringing an old thread back to life -- the '85 Monte Carlo we just picked up apparently spent some portion of its life under a tree. I understand that the paint from that era may have been a lacquer base. Can I use the 3M Adhesive Remover or anything else suggested above on this finish, or will it dissolve into the paint?

    Rubbing alcohol and paper towel is what I use.
