Real funky.

That is the best way to describe this car, let me start with a tiny backstory.
my "hobby" as my loving fiance calls it, is flipping cars and selling them for profit. because i get cheap parts still and i have the knowledge.
Now, i've cleaned some pretty dirty cars, usually with a mixture of dish soap and Zep heavy duty degreaser. but this car is unreal.
Its a 97 Cavalier that has been sitting under a tree for two years, it needs some fuel lines and gas tank straps but that is not the problem. the tree is some kind of Walnut tree. and my usual mixture isn't exactly working.
anyone cleaned anything like this before. I'm only in this car for like 400 bucks, so if it isn't getting cleaned, its getting parted out.

Try Goof off in a spot that wont be really seen. If it dulls the paint in that area, then try waxing the spot or try some Rubbing Compound!!
