go to a self car wash and make sure they have hot water pressure washer.

and apply tree sap remover and let it sit. and hot water pressure washer it off.

OR

you can wait till winter and it will just flake off with your nail because its cold.

lacquer thinner but you have to make sure you DON'T leave it on. that will break it down quickly rubbing it in a circular motion. then advisable to wash car. winter is the other option...I remember doing that many times..lol
