In Topic: Marks On The St

10 July 2014 - 09:00 AM

Crikey! Sorry to see that, it looks like the bird poo has etched in to the clear coat and / or paint.  Hopefully it's not too deep and a machine polish could bring the marks out.  If you haven't access to a machine or know anyone that has one and is willing to give you a hand, something like Sonus paintwork restore or one of the GTechinc products for this sort of thing may be worth a try by hand.

 

Once you get it right, you could do with sealing the paint with something ike Carlack 68 NSC to help prevent this sort of thing happening again, obviously if you want to wax over the top of the NSC to provide further protection that's up to you but certainly get some sealant on.

From my old Renault days Brrrrrrrrrrr, makes me shiver  :lol: seeing as the drain holes are clear, it's advisable to take the door card off and check that the plastic membrane is stuck properly all around.  This membrane is to stop water which gets through the window seals etc, from getting 'inside' the car and it has been known that it can be have been fitted incorrectly either in the factory or, if someone has had it off for whatever reason.

Wrap the end of your finger in a rag and put a bit of smooth peanut butter on it, work it in to the area a bit at a time.

Nah, you did right, he's doubtless hoping to make buyers feel like that.  Anyone with any sense would've put 12 months MOT on it prior to advertising it and would have an idea of what the car would go for.
