Does anybody know what is the best product for removing pine sap from your paint. Got a big pine tree in the front yard and it's getting all over the new truck and Jezzy,(my daily driver when I was home). The truck hasn't been waxed yet so any ideas and suggestions, as the garage is full and I'd like to keep the truck looking good, are extremely welcome.
Thanks
Derek

Good question Derek. I have the same problem thanks to the neighbors pine trees. I also have a new windsheild. Goo Gone does wonders for fresh pine tar. Older tar??? That remains to be read. Hopefully one of our members will have an answer for us.

Hate to say but that hardened tar on the paint may be forever. Afraid that paint would come off with it. Have seen old tar that wept out of ol' Fl. pines and it is tough stuff. Your can burn up a drill bit in that pine.

Have you tried WD 40?

How about a chain saw to prevent the problem from re-occuring?

I haven't tried WD-40 yet, only recently heard about using it. The wife got some Goo-Gone, I don't know if she has tried it yet.
Got a chainsaw and the idea has crossed my mind, but I would probably have to have the city remove it due to power lines and all.
But thanks for all the advice, and hopefully I'll be able to remedy the situation one way or another once i get home.
