In fact I f**k garauntee it has profanity.


Bird has shat on the front passenger door on my used to be lovely EL XR8. Has obviously not been seen the entire time it was there. Only just washed the car and noticed that the f**k bird s**t has eaten a fair bit into the paint. This has happened because I no longer drive the car the wife does and didnt notice it. GRRRRR.

I f**k want to kill all birds, none deserve to live.


f**k YOU BIRDS. I WILL NO LONGER SWERVE OR BRAKE FOR YOU BASTARDS.

f**k tell me about it!! :evil: :x

I have my car locked up in the garage when I'm at home and in an undercover security carpark when I'm at work but somewhere between the 2 a bird managed to s**t on my boot and I didn't notice it for a week. End end result, f**k up paint and this is only 2 months after I had the thing resprayed :cry:

Even rubbing it back with a fairly a*** cutting compound this was the best I could get.

My painter is going to try rubbing back the clear a little and then rebuffing it :cry:

Update. Seeing the damage on the car door in sunlight it wasnt bird crap it was white paint that was on my door. Must of been a s**t because it so looked like bird s**t at night. In the light there is a nice crease mark on the door and some scratching.
Wife takes the car to work and they have assigned parking spots in the yard so the same person parks next to her everyday so we know who it is.
Gonna ask him to pay for it. otherwise I'm going down during the day and gonna dent the f**k out of his door.

If you do get bird crap, wetsand it out and polish the sanding marks out.
Probably 2000-2500 grit should do it
Consult a panel shop or mobile paint repair pro if you don't know how to wetsand

No. Birds must die.

Good news. The guy has admitted fault and is going to pay for the dent removal.
Not many people own up to that and are willing to pay.
Good on him I reckon for being honest. Still a bastard for denting my car though.
