When I left work yesterday afternoon and walked to my car, I noticed there was a fresh bird dropping on the hood. I sprung to action, grabbing my Supreme Shine microfiber and Ultimate Quick Detailer from the trunk and removing the offending present. Unfortunately the damage had already been done, for while the solid dropping was gone there was still some outlines where it had been. The dropping could have been sitting there all day baking in the hot sun, who knows. All I know is I was unable to remove the etch marks.
I've tried Claying and Swirl X but nothing is working. Now that I've done those things, the etch marks are very hard to see in most light, and you cannot even feel them. But they are still there.
What would work in this instance? Am I just not trying hard enough with the Swirl X? Or should I try Ultimate Compound or some other product? I've got an arsenal of Meg's stuff here so I'll try 'em all.
FYI It's a black VW Passat.
Bird poop. It was bound to happen, but so soon? Just bought the car three weeks ago.
