O/T pine sap removal help

Ok, I need some help getting pine sap off of my truck. It was on there when I got it about 9 months ago. It is extremely hard and will not come off. I want to buff the truck but i would think the sap needs to be off. So have any tricks?

I use wd-40 and or gasoline, then wash n wax it. I never had a problem with any paint removal. I drive a white Expedition!

As long as you don't have any chips out of the paint near the sap, I would also use WD-90... WD-90 can get under the paint too, if it finds a path to fallow. How large is the puddle of sap?

Try a little paint thinner, or believe it or not, margarine will work too and so will coca cola.

If it is hard scrape it off with you fingernail or a plastic tool then wipe off the residue with any of the chemicals already listed here.

Two words, Jordan. Lacquer thinner. Best thing I've found to use on clear coat. I wouldn't use it on a single stage paint, though.

Clay bar and detailer that comes with the kit. It'll do amazing things for the rest of the finish too.
