    My work colleague has a black s3 and has been off sick for some months... so he hasnt driven it much... and it was attacked by a terodactyl in a fly by... I've never seen bird bombs so thick... they look like they need an angle grinder!!!

    Any tips on how to deal with this?

    I'm confident that I can help him get any ghost marks and etching out but the initial nightmare of the caked stuff is just woah... how can he approach it? Told him to get the tarp!

    Think it would be nice if I can give him some sound advice... and then he can bring it over and I will DA polish it up for him. He gets back to work in a few weeks.

    Cheers.

    I find that leaving snow foam on it for a longer period works well and then DA polish it out.

    Snow foam... warm water, strong APC (all purpose cleaner)

    if they are really bad, you may need to wet sand the marks out.... :banghead:

    good luck!

    Warm water soaked cloth left on top of it for a few minutes will soften it, and then just snow foam and jet wash.
