Junkman's "Dealing with Bird Drppings without Washing"

In this video, I discuss my method of dealing with bird poop immediately or shortly there after when washing the car is not an immediate option. One thing to keep in mind is how brutal bird poop is to your finish. It is very acidic and can quickly etch into your paint's finish. If unaddressed for long enough, it can cause permanent damage. As you will see in the video, this stain was on the car for around 24 hours and etching had already started, even though the car was parked inside my cool garage. If left in direct sunlight the etching would had done twice as much damage.

I will upload a part two to this video, which shows me removing the damage rather easily due to the fact that my paint had protection on it and I dealt with the damage in a timely manner.

By the way, no hot chicks were accosted during the filming of this video.

Man you were able to keep a vid under 20 min! lol

If I ever win the Power Ball I'm going to offer you a job maintaining my fleet of cars. You have the patience of a saint when it comes to detailing vehicles. I always learn something from your videos.

You better hit a big lottery. I am NOT the cheapest person to ask to work on a car. The line at garage is so short that no one is in it right now.

You are still funny as hell, man. I had hoped that the recent winner in FL was me... but nooooo.

Hey how did that starter deal end up working out on the Vette? I never did follow up on Digital Corvettes, you had it welded right?

That was when I had the delusion I didn't need a back seat. That's what I get for being a grownup with a family. lol

I had it MIG welded and put the engine back together. I even did a video on it.
