    Default detailing question marks in wax

    i washed and polished the car in november and i was a proud person as it came up looking really nice the next day a bird (flying type) did its thing on my roof and bonnet so as i was at the garage i got a paper towel and rubbed it off when it stopped raining i noticed loads of marks in polish.

    today gave it a really good clean and again polished/waxed it thinking the marks would come out once the wax went over it but now it makes it look like i have loads of fine scratches in a 6inch sq spot on bonnet and roof i will try and take pics in the light if its needed

    does anyone know what ive done wrong and how i could get rid also im using auto gymn products and what does a sealer do

    thanks for any help

    Vehicle : vectra

    Trim : gsi

    Engine : 3.2 v6

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 69,000

    Used a paper towel, far to rough for wiping paintwork. I would recommend using a compound such as megs ultimate compound but then follow this up with srp and and then wax, the paper towel will have put the scratches is there which is why I always carry a microfiber which I wash after a couple of uses. Hth buddy

    SRP = Autoglym Super Resin Polish

    SRP is slightly abrasive and also a filler so will cover the worst of the fine scratches. Ideally to fully correct you would machine polish the marks out, but there is some goods swirl / scratch removers out there that can be used by hand that with some time and effort will give you good results.

    thats what i use autogym super resin polish is their anything i can use to seal this

    i have noticed some swirls so will be looking in to a machine polish in a few mth

    im going to try megs ultimate compound and then another good polish hopefully it will come out its not noticable to most people but it sticks out like a sore thumb as i know its their

    That bird poo sometimes has grit and stuff in it, then you rub it with a rough paper towel spells trouble.
    Best to try and remove it with water if you can, or try to pick it up with soft cloth. Before you do any gentle rubbing with anything.

    This is exactly what the marks are. Never wife bird poo off, use a warm wet cloth over the top of it too loosen it up then take the hose to it to remove it. I often spray QD at it to loosen it and help run it off. The paint wok will now need corrected to remove the scratches.

    Live in Blackpool so get a few "deposits" on the paintwork. Always get a cloth soaked in as hot a water as I can pick up and just lie it on top of the mess for a couple of minutes. Then remove the cloth and wash off the residue and give it a mini wash and wax immediately.
