In Reply to: Help with Bird Poop! posted by Paul on April 01, 1999 at 19:17:22:
From what I understand, bird poop is among the worst things for your finish. It is very acidic. I'm not sure what more can be done to fix it easily.
I would say that it sounds like it is in an inconspicous area, and can't be that big. No one would probably ever notice.
It's tough accepting imperfections in your Z3 I know. I had a big acid rain spot on my old roadster. Stuff is going to happen, it is a lot of work (not to mention stress) to keep a finish absolutely perfect. I'd accept that some things are going to happen.
Send an email to the Detailz guy, he gave me some suggestions for getting swirl marks out of my finsih, I'm sure he'd be helpfull to you to.
: I got some bird poop on my Z3 (steel gray) in an area that I did not notice it. It was probably there a few days before I washed it off. Now there is a noticeable area of the finish that still shows where the poop was. I used HD Cleanse from Zymol on it - MOST of it is gone, but not all of it. This is very disconcerting. I need help and suggestions from the list... please don't tell me my finish is ruined forever - I've only had the car for three months!
: Thanks in advnace!
