I usually grab a bottle of gasoline antifreeze (use it in my snowblower) from my garage. I donít use it in fuel injected vehicles, just snowblowers and tree sap.

I have found a chainsaw works like a charm.

I've hugged a few logs laying on the ground putting a chain or choker on them before dragging them out of the woods, does that count?

They make a plastic single edge razor for use on paint and gel coat. It wouldn't be my first choice, that would be wax and grease remover that I use before painting a vehicle.

The OP did NOT mention anything about a situation involving "clear coat". Apparently you misunderstood the question.

Padlin hit the nail on the head. Alcohol is ALL that is needed. If you have never tried it just watch the video, it really works like magic with no damage to the finish. Nuff said.

Yes, lots of pine pitch in the ADK's. We used rubbing alcohol on the gel coat and also on the solar panel.
