Keeping The Bugs Off
 
I will be towing my X2 to Kentucky next weekend and I was wondering what you all use to keep bugs off the tower and tower speakers?

I thought about blue painters tape on the leading edge of the tower and saran wrap the speakers?

We saran wrap the towers completely every time we tow to the boat shows in the winter to keep the salt off.

saran wrap from aldi - cheap and it comes off easy... I like the tape idea but some folks have a hard time getting it all off.

I bought tower speaker covers from beyondthewake.com for my 07 x-2 that work great. Don't really do much for the tower but I like the Saran Wrap idea.

This leads me to another question. How do you most effectively scrub the bugs off the tower once they are plastered on?? I used a rough scrubber used for doing dishes and that worked pretty good.

On the tower, something like a good bug/tar remover (I even use Simple Green) and a scrub sponge is what I use.

Here's a good write up from AutoGeek: http://www.autogeek.net/remove-bugs-and-tar.html

Speaker and rack covers, plastic wrap the rest.

I used blue painters tape last year.worked good, kind of a pain and looked ghetto down the hwy.This winter I bought speakersox rack covers.And am going to try clear non slip tape you put down on carpet cut 2" wide strips....Already had wetsounds covers for the tower speakers.
