Is there a network of detailers, that maybe I could look at to take my vehicles to so that I can have this stuff done correctly the first time? I don't have bad results by my standards, but I've found when it comes to a profession, the people who do it usually take much more pride and care in their work. Plus they know what they are looking for. Im in South East Indiana, and I know absolutely nobody who does great work in the area.

If you park under a tree it could be tree sap. Pollen usually does not imbed itself in the wax or clear coat paint.

Well I solved the mystery. I forgot I spray painted my frame since the last time I washed it so it must've been over spray

A claybar and a rewax should take care of that.

The sap is really hard and it's been like that for days. I didn't notice it before and when I did it was hard as a rock. I guess I could give it a try

If you apply a second coat of wax 12 to 24 hours later the finish will take on a deeper wet look.

If you have any kerosene put a little on a cloth and let it sit on the sap for 10 to 15 min. You might have to do this 2 0r 3 times. You will need to claybar and wax once the sap is remover. DO NOT USE A LAQUER THINNER, MINERAL SPIRITS, OR A PAINT BRUSH CLEANER.

Got it!
I think I have some kerosene left and claybar/wax won't be a problem.

Rubbing alcohol works great, too. Put some on a papertowel and it will come off. Of course, you will have to wax it again...

For 303 check a local boat store if one is close by. Try the Mothers clay bar kit at any auto parts store.

I am not a fan of the wet shine as most will sling off on to your Tacoma. I prefer the clean black satin look of Zaino tire shine.

What would you guys recommend for cleaning oxidized/foggy headlights? I tried some Turtle Wax brand headlight cleaner and it did pretty much nothing. What would a better alternative be?
