    Ive had a few of these " matt " stains on my car since ive had it , ive tride to polish them out with no luck and used some Autoglym tar remover with no luck.

    I wasn't too botherd as i have a few stone chips that i was gonna get wet sanded , so was gonna get a detail at the same time.

    Ive had a few " poo's " on my car of late and always got rid ASAP , i spotted one tonight , it must have been on there 3 hours , so i removed it , but it left a " matt " coloured stain.

    Now i know what these " matt " stains are , and after ready the POO threads they may not be able to be got rid off!

    Should i not bother with the detail and just get a bonnet respray as i have stone chips anyway?

    Thanks

    Might get shot for saying this but have you tried Autoglym Paint renovator? its good stuff, fairly abrasive, im sure there is better stuff out there but i had one on my roof, paint renovator, SRP and waxed.. no marks.

    ^^^^The Poo has taken the clear coat off , and reading other threads there doesn't seem to be that much clear coat to play with?

    I know it's a detailing forum , but i don't want to spend £300 + and it not get a perfect finish , i may as well get a bonnet respray.

    phantom - I've had the same problems and am getting a paint correction/detail next week to fingers, toes, knees crossed get the stains sorted.

    Really, really hoping that the stains can be gotten rid off else I'm not gonna be impressed.

    Will let you know how it goes mate.. :shrug:

    The problem with etching is that it can penetrate the full thickness of the paint system very easily, meaning no matter how much you polish the panel you can't remove the stain. You never know this though until you start! We have had some cars that corrected 100%, but others little improvement can be made. Respraying guarantees full correction! :yes:
