Actually I have the best results with clay bar. The sap comes off very easilly and it will remove lots of other contaminates from your paint you probably didn't even realize were there. You can pick the Meguiar's Quick Clay Detailing Kit at AutoZone or Walmart. Or you can order it on line for $10 at:

As well concerning the clay bar, Meguiar's has an EXCELLENT on-line video about car care that fully details the use of the clay bar to remove buildup of all types. The video is an incredible 30 minutes long, and is absolutely packed with excellent info. The video I'm speaking of is called "Automotive Appearance Care Clinic", and can be viewed from the link below. There is also other good car care videos on this page here:

The claybar is excellent. I used the Zaino claybar, but its probably just as good as the Meguiars. I would never use any sort of sandpaper on the clearcoat. The claybar works wonders.

Wal-Mart or Auto Zone, cool, I dont have the patience to order it on line.
It makes me sad:( though, I do not have a garage to keep her in, I am planning to build a car port though, keep her away from the trees as much as possible.....

If you're in a pinch and need to get the sap off but don't have a clay bar or any bug and tar remover around, take a washcloth and dab on a little of the wife/girlfriend's nail polish remover (acetone). Just a little bit of scrubbing and your paint will be clean as a whistle. Just make sure you wash it well right afterwards and apply a good coat or two of wax to those spots right away, as the acetone will take off any wax you've got on there. Do that, and it'll look good as new.
