    Grab the clown that put it there, by his scrawny little butt-head of a neck and wrap HIS lips around your bumper until it comes up clean as the day it left the factory!

    Or, wait until Gary (Turbomangt) comes by with the REAL GOODS.

    Arrow Re: Gum

    One of the best means is to simply purchase a bottle of Ronsonol Light Fluid or Zippo lighter fluid which can be found at grocery stores or places where the sell cigarettes. Apply the fluid to the a cotton rag--do not apply it directly to the car--and wipe the gum off; it will come right off. You can also go down to your local auto parts store and purchase tar remover--again, never apply directly to the car (instead use a rag with fluid applied to it), but it is much harsher than lighter fluid; I use lighter fluid on many things need to be cleaned, but that cannot tolerate harsh chemicals.

    Re: Gum

    Lighter fluid is Naptha. Just plain naptha.

    Buy a can at any hardware store. Very handy to have around. A much milder solvent than an acetone or MEK or Toluol....

    Very flammable. Put the cigarette out before you start playing with the Naptha.....
