    I have a black car an its parked outside3 24/7 so I get alot of tree sap.

    There are small dots all over the hood roof trunk and top of doors. I tried clay bar and it only take off some of the sap, i am guessing the ones that cane come off are the ones that are baked on. I also tried isotopy alchole that was recommend by a buddy but no work.

    Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Should i take it into body shop and have wetsand and polish?
    or hire a detailer?

    If there's sap on the hood or paint for that matter, try using a body solvent, it's more gentle than an interior solvent but works really well.
