Hi guys just picked up a new car sea grey st 2 and the paint is in fairly good condition but the is one patch of bird sh1te that has been left on and it seems to have marked the paint. Whats the best way to remove this I was thinking clay bar ??

I would have said just good old fashioned car shampoo and water to wipe it off and if its left a bit of a mark get something abrasive like a polish / t-cut to tidy it up. I say this although I've no real specialist knowledge or anything on the subject, its just what I would do if a bird
gets stuck on my ST! haha

congrats on purchase though, hope you enjoy her!

Yeah it does look better but I couldn't take any more ! Its going back to dealers any ways so will let them do it !
Car is generally tidy but it like its been parked under a tree for months because there's tree sap on one side too ?

it can be used by hand for small jobs like the mark you have, for larger jobs i would use a da or rotary like it says.

the black hole will only cover the light swirls up, the deeper stuff you can see would need to be polished out ,

there are a load of polishes you can use, i personally like the poorboys range because they are really easy to use.
