Paint Damage

Post by ASB1960 »

Poo on car whilst away. Any suggestion for how best to try and cheaply rectify (or at least improve).

Gently wash off with warm water then you'll need somebody to machine polish with a medium compound like 3m Ultrafina.

That must have been some aggressive poo, or a hot day, or both.

It usually just deforms the clearcoat a little, rather than etching too deeply? A polish should flatten the surface again, returning the glossy/reflective finish.
