    Flippen birds

    Discovered bird droppings on my spoiler this morning. It was only there overnight, but it ate thru the clearcoat. God knows what that bird was eating!

    Any suggestions on how to repair it? I tried polish and a buffer, but it was only partially effective.

    I carry a little bottle of quick detailer and a mf towel in the car. If I'm parked in the open for a while check the car for things like that before leaving to clean off anything before it has chance to bake on and or ruin the clear coat.

    Anyway +1 for wingless.

    A picture would help. Can you feel where it etched the paint or is it just visible? If you can feel it, it's probably permanent (unless you can find someone skilled at wet sanding) which sounds a lot worse than it really is. If not, you need a good semi abrasive paint cleaner and some kind of buffer like a Porter Cable DA polisher. This will work much better than by hand. If you don't already have one, I'd invest in one as it makes your detailing much easier for everything.

    It's just visible, you can't feel it when you run your fingers over it. I have a Porter and tried a couple scratch/swirl remover products, but no success. I think I need a dedicated clearcoat polish.

    Yeah, the Porter works great. I can do the whole car in a coat of Zaino in a short time.

    Theres only a few things that would work that you can get OTC. Some car parts places sell a small bottle of 3M paint cleaner, and some have Mequiars Fine Cut Cleaner #2 which should work if worked long enough on the paint. Then just follow those up with a polish and you shoould be all set. If not, use a more abrasive cleaner or pad and try again. I swear by Poorboys products. Their SSR 2.5 with a polishing (not finishing) pad would fix that straight away, and you probably wouoldn't even need to follow it up with anything else.
