OK, a bird did a number on my topaz blue hood and I was dumb enough not to clean it off right away. So yesterday I washed the car and surprise surprise the hood is discolored where the cr4p was on the hood. it's not really obvious, but when the car is clean and shiny, you can see a dullness in the outline of the droppings.

Is there a way to fix this?

What happened is the bird droppings etched into the clear coat. It looks a bit wavy and discolored right? You need to go out and get yourself some 3M Swirl Mark Remover PN# 39009 . Follow the "by hand" directions on the back. Polish until desired result is acheived. It will work. Trust me! I had a bird crap on my M3 hood and on my Gsxr750 tank (very badly) and both times I was successfully able to polish it out with this product. I bought mine at Pep Boys.

But for tough ground-in stains and marks, they will have to be buffed or polished out.
