Of all the cars in the street, many of which have never seen car shampoo, a bird decides to crap on my shining TVR. After wiping this away I noticed it had marked the paintwork.
Is it possible to remove this mark and if so does anyone have any tricks or tips?

Bird crap eats into the paint. You'll have to use something like T-cut or Autoglym polish to get the shine back.

Always wipe bird crap off as soon as you spot it and keeping a decent coat of wax on the paint helps. Little buggers seem to prefer crapping on shiny cars.

I had a massive bird splat on the front bumper of my DS3R last year, tried various things to remove the etch it had left, finally used Autoglym paint renovator and it worked a treat!

They are buggers, our S2 has a burn mark visible in some lights on the roof, from several years back... As above, I now go straight for the bucket as soon as I see it...

It's unreal with bird poop...

I live on an estate surrounded by other houses - but I rarely see birds in my garden, and there aren't even any trees around my / my neighbour's houses. Around my place, it doesn't strike me as a place where birds would find food / hang out.

And yet.

At least every week, I come out to find a huge avian dropping on my bloody car mad

So I keep a pack of 'Auto glym Bird dropping wipes' in the glovebox.

They remove the stuff easily, without damaging the paint / wax on the bodywork.



I keep thinking about buying a decent airgun lately biggrin
