It takes guts to post a picture like that here.
Sorry, but I wanted to share my pain. lol. I was sick when I saw what the front end looked like. It cleaned up perfect. I used the Chemical Guys waterless car wash every day while I was in Florida. Monday, I gave it a light washing with a water hose and the bugs came off easily. I drop it off Monday morning for paint correction and Gtechniq Pro Elite protection for the body and glass.

Sadly, this is what my front end looked like Monday morning when I got up after getting home late from a 700 mile drive home from Florida.
Florida grows bugs. This was after crossing the Lake Jessup bridge on the Greenway coming back from the Orlando International Airport.

I had to stop to clean the windshield after crossing. Could see and the wipee/washer just smeared the stuff.

When people display their cars they sometimes have stands with information next to them. I made this using a picture frame & Ford promotional info, hangs from holes in the hood via chains. Gives people something to read.

Had one for the 11 also, different format.

I thought of doing something like that with the Marti Report. First I have to get it.

.
Besides the hood sign, I have a mod sheet, dyno sheet, & Marti report on the dashboard.
.........( this for cruise nights )
My thought is if I'm not near my car, a person looking @ it should be able to answer most of their questions.
For car shows, the trunk gets cleaned out & presents other signage..
