Re: It is now pollen and bird crap time also insects (Helmut Ranff)

Any advice to lessen the etching effect of acidic bird droppings that left marks in my clearcoat? And yes......I keep it waxed (about every 2-3 months). Unfortunately, it washed off but did not wax out.

Mangoon:

Time for a polish. I like 3M Imperial Hand Glaze....it also works well on marks that do not penetrate the clear coat. They have heavier and lighter grades as well. I have used this product for over 10 years after it was recommended to us by a very reputable body shop. It's great!

Find it here..Care Care Online

BTW, Care Care online is a great little mom and pop shop run by a guy who knows a lot about car care. Any questions, just call him.

Helmut, have you been there? It's in Lodi.

Not really.
If the bird poop was on for more than 24hrs you're sort of had it.
You could try to have a pro wet sand it with 1000 grit, compound and polish.
If you try that make sure he's extra careful or you may not have any paint left
