i got my car for not even 2 weeks...and it got bird shit on it like theres no tomorrow

washed it...then bird shit the next morning...rinse it...and then theres more :mad:

and no i don't park under a tree or anything...i park outside of my house where there shouldn't be any birds flying around to take a shit on it!!!!

it's like they don't want me to keep it clean!!!!

question is...what can i use to just wipe it without washing the whole car...cuz it gets frustrating...and believe me those shit are hardcore lol

How about a 12 gauge? That'll take care of it.

No but seriously, use bug and tar remover, should work just as well on bird droppings. Some of them strip wax, but I believe the Turtle version does not. Just make sure you get it off when it's still "fresh."

yeah i had a blue truck before my silver koup. Birds loved the blue, cause they think its water. Apparently they love silver more. From what ive been told they are attracted to silver cause of the reflectivity:mad:

Personally I hate all shit....especially shit heads!


If it's fresh shit try a spray detail wax first with a microfiber towel

DO NOT USE BUG AND TAR REMOVER...that shit is as bad as shit for your paint

and I am not shitting you!

I use that meguiers quick detailed also, works great, but if the crap sits on your paint to long the acidity of it will begin to etch your clearcoat, I used clay bar, rubbing compound scratch and swirl remover and wax and the faint etch of a shit outline is still there.

Same here, I still have a small spot. It's annoying, may try some paint remover, as every bodyshop I've been to has said to use that for clearcoat scratches.

So yeah... had bird poop on my hood and didn't wash it off... it's not very fresh anymore. So I decided to wash the car today and found a light etch mark on my hood from where the poop used to be... (I know, I'm kicking myself right now...)

Anybody know how I can get rid of the etch markings? I've been scouring the internet and one item that kept popping up was Megular's Ultimate Compound. Anybody have any experience with this?

FYI, the etch mark isn't too deep and hasn't bubbled my paint yet.

Meguire might be better for it. Hopefully the guys on here can give you better advice
