    well I made a mistake and parked my truck hoping to get some shade under a pine tree. 8 hrs later theres tiny sap all over the truck.

    Remember to put some kind of polish/wax back over it as most of the cleaners that will remove sap will also strip wax.

    "Another great pine tree sap remover is WD-40. Its mild solvent properties easily break down sap. The lubricant is safe on most types of paint. Spray it on and rinse it off with vinegar and water solution. Wash as usual."

    Better do it soon too...

    I'm serious , butter works on sap

    You every cut firewood and get sap all over your hands ? Butter takes it off better than anything else .

    Gas works too... just be quick with it.

    I'm curious, with all these 'other' creative ideas if anyones pissed on theirs yet?
