    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.
    Maybe try ice, like Fletch suggested. I would try rubbing some gasoline on it.

    Not much works well. I get tree sap on my truck every now and then. I found that letting it dry for a few weeks and then very gently picking it off will do the trick. Patience is key.

    Do this^^

    Do not use a solvent on your paint. Nail polish remove is acetone.

    I've just used dirt. Rub dirt on the sap, wash with household dish soap like Dawn. Comes right off

    I was referring to it being on my skin. I said nothing about doing it to my truck.

    Butter is the best. They are both veggy oils, and the butter will soften the sap.

    If there was ever anything to trust a Canadian on I would think it would be sap.
