Alan,

That Auto Goop stuff seems pretty amazing stuff. I will have a look at it, however as a 3 month solution it may be a bit of a stretch. I will contact the Goop guys and see how long it can be used before re-application. The other option seems to be wax the paint and then apply a thin rub of WD40 over the wax on big driving days.

Actually came back here to post that one, have used it myself too. it softens when it rain, so less protection from scratches, but if just bugs you are thinking about on the highway then would still be fine for that even if it has softened after a rain.

I tried goop, even did a write up on here somewhere. As soon as it rains it turns white and falls off. I did all the side of the car for my first forumites trip (when they use to run them) and it rained on the way there and when i got out it had turned white and was peeling off (kind creepy looking).

Something I'm thinking about is how to protect the paint for the heaps of bugs that will be on the paint.

I waxed the paint on Monday, but I wonder if there is anything else I can do to make it as easy as possible to get the bugs off or prevent them sticking in the first place?

My Google search had found the following so far : WD40 (not sure if it will attack the paint with extended use), Lanolin oil rubbed over the paint, and Bug Off. Any advice?
I have found Armorall Extreme Sheild Wax to be very good.
Polished the bonnet & guards of my work car drove 400km's through stor
ms and the polished bits were spotless, the rest of the car less so.
