Bugs, Bugs, dang them Bugs!

Ok, just completely cleaned the Wildcat Maxx after our trip to Yellowstone. Worked hard on removing all the dang Bugs off the front cap. After I'm finished the Sun shines on the front cap and sure enough, there's still "shadows" of some of the Bugs left there. I had several good coats of a "wax" on the cap so I was surprised to see the shadows left there.
My question-- What is the best product/process/technique to remove these "spots?
Thanks in advance for any assistance on removing the remains of these nasty critters!

Unfortunately, lots of 'elbow grease'. I use one of those small sponges for bug removal on cars but it takes a lot of work on each spot.

SEA FOAM bug remover. Works very well. Spray it on , let it set for a minute or so and wash it off with my RV wash brush. The stream setting on the nozzle allows you to spray it where you need it.

I use a wet fresh Bounce fabric dryer sheet. Works like a dream time in time again. I do a wash of the area, then go back and do it with a Bounce sheet and rinse away.

Thumbs up for "Sea Foam Bug-B-gone". Thanks for the recommendation, it's my new "go to" bug remover!
