It is a little late this time (wife called on the 401, saw a Lotus). She'll be going back down that way a couple more times, and I dred thinking of the time I have ahead of me cleaning the car.

Nice.
I think cleaning off the bugs she killed will be easier then adding/removing that.

probably.

the only thing i can think of is to have a good coat of wax on it, and then wash it as soon after as possible, so the bugs don't bake into the paint.

...or just tell her to take the caravan

I tried to get her to take the van.
The thought of driving the car on real hwys had her dead set on taking the car.

Talked to her twice today. Each time I could hear the turbo and my little guy giggling.
I hate her sometimes. I should have been the stay home dad.

It does work....but can cause some bug stains to scratch your paint as you drag the crusty bastards across the bumper when you're wiping. I just use really soapy water
