Bloody birds.

So I found my car had been defecated on by what must have been a flock of birds with chronic bowl problems. Unfortunately in my haste to remove the muck I've taken the sheen off the pain on my Alfa. Nothing bad just a dull fade where there once was shine.

Any recommendations as to how to make her shine again?

Thanks in advance

Re: Bloody birds.

Try a decent polish first, if its still dull then a product like Autoglym's Paint Renovator will refresh it but be careful because it is actually removing a paint layer and they're aren't that many. Use a wax or resin based polish afterwards as this will provide a protective barrier.

Good luck.
