I was thinking of covering the windsheld with SARAN WRAP; than replacing it when it got covered with splattered bugs. LOL

I got some Bug and tar remover from Turtle Wax. Works really good. I wet my windshield. Use a folded blue shop towel, one of those really strong ones. Pour bug remover on cloth and apply to windshield, it takes like no time and no elbow grease at all. When I drive from NJ to PA 200 miles. I must kill at least 400 bugs between my windshield, bumper, and grill.

Put rain-x on your WS once you get the bugs off with a bug and tar remover. It will help so much in the future.

Also try and find a glass wax.... is just as good as Rain-X. But Rain-X is half the price

The stuff they make for aircraft windshields works wonders.
