Does anyone have a trick to ridding your tower of the bugs you pick up as you tow? My tower is polished aluminum and looks terrible after I tow to the lake.

you can try spraying 303 on it to make it slick so as to easily wipe off.

Such a huge let down to polish the hell out of that thing all ready for the bling bling and DDOOOOHHHH! Bug city.

Use wax on it and then before you head to the lake spray it down with some silicone spray and then they will just wipe right off once you get where you are going.

The Wax and 303 Yea" they are a sort of a fix. It does make it easyer to wipe off, But bug's are still going to make a mess. And 303 on his polished tower is going to look like hell. When you wipe the Dead bugs off there legs and heads and what ever's left fall into you boat. Then Hot chick's end up sitting on the remains of dead bugs and then you have to look at dead bugs stuck to Hot girls.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

Hot girls and dead bugs don't mix. Like Vodka and Coke! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>

Haha! Good one. <BR> <BR>My tower gets nasty but our tower speakers get hit really bad. Does anyone know of any covers out there for Boss 6x9 speakers? <BR> <BR>

I use rubbing alcohol and a rag. Cleans them right off and only takes a few seconds.

Stephani - I seen a Moomba being towed the other day with plastic grocery bags covering his speakers. That a cheap fix, if you dont have removeable speakers.
