In my many years of driving never had this happen. Getting ready for club run and show. Fresh wash and detail. Quick drive got home spider web looking crap all down the side and hanging from the bottom. Hot pavement I guess I hit some asshats gum. Thank goodness for Iron X. Anyone else had the misfortune of gum? How did you remove it?

Yep, got the same stringy mess on my GT once. Took an ice cube and ran it over the strings and they came off easily once semi-frozen (let the paint cool of completely first of course). Did piss me off however.

happened years ago to my corvette. I tried the ice trick but it didn't work well for me and this was a seriously disgusting mess in my wheel well and up the bottom side of car. I ended up using some 3M adhesive remover on it. Wipes right off and doesn't hurt anything. Followed up with a wash and a bit of quick polish of course. I remember sort of gagging as I cleaned it..

Lol what is this, the coincidence of the month thread? I literally did this a week and a half ago. And of course it happens, on my way to work, in my fresh, self washed and shiny stang. =/

PSA FOR ALL GUM CHEWERS: Please through your used gum in the garbage, or at least into the bushes/grass/trees. Thank you.

Hate to hear it happens to others but at the same time I know I'm not alone. I have to be careful how I remove mine because of the Xpel and Ceramic Pro.

Here's hoping that all of you escape from this unscathed for the remainder of the summer.
