Any suggestions on the best way to remove pine pitch without damaging the clear coat / paint?

Would that be tree sap?

I used mineral oil on a micro fiber towel. Came right off, then I washed the area with soap and water. Mineral Oil shouldn't damage your paint, use sparingly though.

Most solvents will do just fine. Just don't use anything acidic...that will eat the paint. Abrasives will also take paint off.

Solvents will take wax off in addition to the contaminants, but won't hurt the clearcoat. Just rewax the area when you're done.

Always start with the least aggressive method first and go more aggressive if that doesn't do it.
