Paint work stains

Help!!! Especially anyone that is in Perth.. I had to leave my car in Perth for a few days while I flew home and left it out the front of a friends house not under a tree, but next to one.
When I flew home last night, I gave the car the once over and noticed millions of tiny clear sap spots all over the car body (alpine white) and windows... to my horror, I drove it down to the touchless car wash and gave it a good soak, the windows etc came up spotless but it still seems really stuck all over the paint... its not sticky anymore, it feels smooth, but wont budge.. it seems superficial though.. Am going to hand wash it tonight and see if that makes a difference.

Any suggestions? buff/polish? any one in Perth, can suggest a really good body shop to do it for me?

GRRRRRR!! Not happy Jan

get a claybar and rub it. make sure u kneed the clay often. Water is a good enough lubricant but u can use their quick detailer too

Did you have opticoat? Tar/spot remover works for some stubborn marks
