    Dead bugs, road grit, etc. What's the best stuff to use?

    itsa product called 'Showtime'...by a company called 'Mothers'...you buy it
    at car accessory stores...itsan 'instant detailer'...you spray a bit on and
    wipe it orf wiffa rag and it removes bugs, tar, etc. from the veagle...used
    for the final clean of your show car having driven it to the venue...not
    that i keep anything clean except the screen, but if you wanted to impress
    you would stop a block from her house, whip out the showtime, and wipe away
    the last 2000 Km of grime
    but anyway, gets stuff orf screens and sheds water and doesnt leave
    scratches << provided yer rag is ok

    Autobarn sells it...dunno if its suitable for cleaning tho...works well for
    a polish off when screen is clean...fills in all the little scratches, sheds
    water well

    Mr Sheen. Windex will do it too, but Mr Sheen seems to deal better
    with the really juicy bugs.
