Buggy Paint!

Has anyone heard (or found a proven method) of keeping the bugs out of the wet paint? It's driving me crazy (and the short trip is getting shorter) and the only thing that is more irritating than the bugs is... the wind! It can be still as can be... until I open the can of paint. I kept telling David I wanted a 40 ft paint job. I was hoping for a little better looking but I guess I can live with it. The Class C didn't look too bad a couple weeks after I painted it. Took that long for all the bug feet to "disappear".

Re: Buggy Paint!

Bugs are attracted to the solvents in some paints. Nothing a little wet sanding, compound and polish wont take care of.

Heck, if you picked the same color as the bugs...

But they are all different colours! Why can't just the "almond" coloured ones stick to the paint!!! Well, they're almond now!
