New Toy

Finally took the plunge and got myself a Makita 9227C rotary buffer. Woohoo! I've been practising with it the older Corolla.

Etches - Bird Dropping

This is what happens when a bird dropping is left to bake on the surface under the hot sun. It attacks right away, etching right through the clearcoat; usually the severity of it depends on what the bird ate. The next time you get any droppings on your car, remove it as soon as possible.

Paint Overspray

This is not exactly a paint defect, its more of a surface contaminant. Paint overspray are fine droplets of paint dried onto the surface. These droplets of paint may be carried by the wind for quite a distance, from any painting work being done. Worst scenario would be to park your car closeby, where painting is being done. Clay will pick up and remove paint overspray.
