Help, I've been sapped!

Recently purchased a new 2009 vehicle. Vehicle then got parked under a pine tree for a couple of days. Now there are little spots of pine all over the vehicle. It has been hand washed and the spots are still there, even on the glass. Does anyone know how to get this pine off of the vehicle?

100% mineral spirits followed by a wash and wax.

just get some bug and tar remover at the auto parts store. It’ll take it off easily.

Use # 364 for WD40.

IPA AKA isopropyl alcohol has worked for me.
