Well, it all started Saturday. Washed and quick shined the paint, cleaned the freakin protectant crap off of the wheels, applied the leather conditioner, cleaned the windows and stood back at admired this beautiful car.

Then came today.......Got on the freeway, took her up to about 70, let the tunes go........and then. BAM!!!!! The biggest bird turd you have ever seen drops out of the sky and slams the hood.........like a brick I tell ya.:willy:

I swear it had to be an Eagle or something that just finished off a little road kill......Whoa! It never fails, clean it up, the birds will find it........:rolleyes:

Anyhoo, thought you might get a kick outta my displeasure......:D

At least bird goop comes off. I spent hours polishing and waxing Saturday only to pick up a couple stone nicks on the way to work this morning. Some stupid pickup ahead of me went over a bump, and he must've had some gravel sitting on his rear bumper. It bounced off and ping-ponged all over, and even though I hit the brakes and swerved, he still got me. I guess I'll be in the garage this evening.

Birds are the enemy... fight back! I keep a bottle of Mguire's Quick Detailer spray along w/ glass cleaner wipes, tire shine wipes, leather conditioner wipes, and 2 microfiber cloths (one for silicone based products, one for non-silicone based products) along with some basic tools (screwdrivers, wrenches, 1" high temp electrical tape, WD-40, spare belt, jumper cables, tire pressure guage, hose clamp, wire brush) in a small tool bag in my trunk. This little kit has kept my car looking clean between washes away from home as well as got me out of some jams (corroded battery terminals, broken serpentine belt). I also keep a California Duster in the trunk, but it's too big to fit in the bag. It sounds like alot of stuff but it all fits in a small Craftsman nylon tool bag and sits nicely against the left side wall of the trunk. I'd highly reccomend it to anyone.

You'd be suprised at what quick detailer can do... might not want to use a good microfiber cloth on the bird... but i've done an entire S10 w/ quick detailer that went through 15 miles of hideously dusty construction on its way to a car show. Came out suprisingly well and won honrable mention in the custom small truck category... out of about 30 in the category.

That is funny PHOTOGOAT! Got a picture? Nothing like getting to check out a good five pound bird turd!

I'll trade you 5# of turd for my "Wash Me Please" scratched in the rear quarter panel on my goat...

get rid of the turd fast. This paint is so crappy (no pun intended) that it will probably eat through the paint in no time.

Sounds like you could have been the lucky recipient of a goose bomb. I had something similar happen to me a couple years back at work in my pickup. A flock of geese were flying low at an angle across the roadway and as I went under them--splat! Started at the top of the windshield, angled down to the corner and on to my elbow which was sticking out the window. Yak!

Not just all in the trunk... it all fits in a $9.99 Craftsman 12" Wide Mouth Nylon Tool Bag. It's packed a little tight but I could probably free up a little space by using flat packages instead of canisters of the tire, glass, and leather wipes. If you can't tell i'm the kind of person who's completely OCD about the organization of my various roll-away tool chests and work benches.
