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.

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! <p>Find it here..<A HREF="http://www.carcareonline.com/search_results.asp?txtsearchParamTxt=hand+glaze&txtsearchParamCat=ALL&txtsearchParamType=ALL&iLevel=1&txtsearchParamMan=ALL&txtsearchParamVen=ALL&txtFromSearch=fromSearch=" TARGET="_blank">Care Care Online</A><p>BTW, Care Care online is a great little mom and pop shop run by a guy who knows a lot about car care.
