Are bird droppings bad for my paint? How can I remove them

Bird Dropping-Fall Out

 

Q. Are bird droppings bad for my cars paint?

 

A. Yes, Bird droppings are highly acidic!  They should be removed immediately.

 

Q. How do I remove a bird dropping?

 

A. Using a quick detail spray or a waterless detailing product makes it easy to remove fresh or recent bird dropping.

 

Q. The bird dropping was on my car and when I removed it there is a mark or stain in the paint what can I do?

 

A. Steps

1) Light surfaces etches caused by acidic bird dropping can be removed by compounding or in some case a light polish.

2) If the acid has eaten through the paint or into the clear coat,  in some cases they can be wet sanded out with the use of a Flex Sanding block and the correct water sanding sheets and then buffed out with P40 Polish or a compound.

3) Neglected bird dropping that have severely damaged the paint could in many cases require you to repaint that area.
