    Soap and water with a clean sponge, then chamois.
    and for the stubborn parts, windex and magic eraser.

    Your local Harley Davidson shop has some "denim" paint cleaner. Its all I use, on my flat painted vehicles.

    I put about a pint of windex in a 5 gal pail of water and scrub with a bug sponge, then dry with a towel. For really tough grease spots from road kill,Car Quest purple cleaner works well. I have single stage polyurethane military aircraft paint. Tough stuff.

    For the folks with primer (the real stuff, not rattle can), I use a 3M gray pad and soft scrub bathroom cleaner, takes all the finger prints and hand prints right off.

    Looking Good 1948stude. I use Mr.Clean Magic Eraser Pads. Removes grease, fingerprints and dried bugs fast and easy. Just dip a pad in a bucket of water, wring out excess and scrub away. I do one panel at a time and dry as I go, works perfectly.
