    This is not something I have tried, but may work. I know a lot of guys before going to the track will spray Pam cooking spray on their rear bumper where the spinoff occurs. Having the Pam cooking spray applied prior to that, helps tremendously with the clean up of the spinoff.

    If you are going on a night cruise where you know you are going to be getting bugged up, spraying the Pam on there prior to driving might help get the bugs off. It might be worth a try anyways.

    That seems like a good idea but pam is kind of oily. It'd be worth a shot. I could see that running with all the wind at highway speeds.

    I'm guessing that would attract a ton load of dust too.

    It's dusty here in AZ, and if I so much as put my hand on the car, then drive it,,,,I have a nice big dusty hand print. Even just the oils from your skin attract it. I would imagine spraying a can of Pam would double the effect....

    Out here we try to use detailers and waxes that attract minimal dust.

    I am sure it would attract dust, but you are missing the point. The purpose of using the Pam spray at the track is for the ease of removal of tar etc. from burnouts. I was not implying the Pam spray would keep the bugs off the car, it won't. What I was suggesting, is that it may make the cleanup after a cruise much easier.

    I got the point, I just see another issue with that method that others obviously don't

    I used Pledge furniture wax when going on road trips. It is easy to clean when you want to. It keeps the bugs from getting burned into the paint.

    Nothing will keep the bugs off as your driving. Nothing.

    Unless you want to use Turtle Wax bug remover everytime,
    I suggest you wax the hell out of it. I have found
    that The Honda dealership in the parts dept. sells a can
    of spray polish. Hands down the best I've seen and making
    it easier to spray the bugs off. After you use that.
    The garden hose is all you'll need to wash them off.

    OFF or MAXI-DEET works pretty good around campfires, but im not sure how it will do for the paint.
