    Default Paintwork blemishes

    Hello,

    Hopefully you can see below the photo's which show some of the paintwork issues, the first one looks like the lacquer is pealing back on the panel near the boot, and the second show what looks like the lacquer starting to bubble on the bonnet.

    Any ideas how to solve this?

    I am considering getting the car machine polished at a local bodyshop, but don't want this to make the matter worse.

    Only other action would be to pay the bodyshop to sort all the little blemishes, and polish after that.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    The first picture can only be cured with a visit to a bodyshop.

    The second picture the large marks are bird poop. There deposits can be highly acidic and if left on the bodywork and not cleaned off they start to dissolve and attack the paintwork.

    Thought as much...

    Is there a way to get rid of the bird poop ones without professional help? Would cutting compound and polish sort it out?

    Are Chips away type companies worth dealing with?

    The best way to repair the bird lime damage is to wet sand the top surface then to polish out the sanding with something like 3m fast cut plus or farecia g3 , and then buff back with a swirl remover
