What's the best polish to protect paintwork from bird droppings?
My son lives in Twickenham and keeps his car in a public car park which is covered in trees. His old car had several big marks in the paintwork on the bonnet and roof caused by bird poo which is obviously very acid. He has just got a new car. What is the best polish to use to stop this happening? Or are there better methods?
The best method is to invest in a decent car cover. Second to that, remove the bird droppings as soon as possible. They will do much less damage to the paintwork if they don't sit on it for days at a time. Spray the droppings and wipe it off with a cloth, Meguiar's Quik Detailer (amzn.to/2S029MZ) is a good choice. Also, keep the car waxed. This will make cleaning bird droppings off easier. We generally recommend a polish like Poorboys White Diamond (amzn.to/2W4qYaA), followed by a sealant like Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax (amzn.to/2Wvdg59). Autoglym Rapid Aqua Wax Complete Kit is also a good option: amzn.to/2RS0rgA
