  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Got back from AROC Yorkshire's Newby Hall gathering around 16.30 yesterday to find the Giulietta on the drive covered with a few birdy splats. We have seagulls, jackdaws and pigeons dumping in our neighbourhood. I resolved to clean them off today. I needed stepladders and copious dollops of AG...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK, is the lacquer/paint that useless on a GT that a pile of bird crap less than one hour old already leaves a mark that I can't get off??? Second time this has happened in the last few months. I keep quick detailer in the car with a micro so it never stays on long. This is getting truly...

    Finally moved into our new house after 6 months of hell, and absolutely love it..............apart from the constant and endless crapping of birds on my matt magnesio GQV. It is bringing out my inner OCD big time. The previous owners used to feed the local birds 3 times a day, and as such our...

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well, my week has ended badly / weekend has started badly!! On Thursday morning my lovely Atlantico Blue Cloverleaf GT was shat on by what I can only assume was the biggest flying feathery friend known to man, I think the Dodo is back from extinction!! The N/S rear window area scattered with a...

    I made the mistake of parking under some trees the other day and came back to see my roof coated with bird crap. Unfortunately, i was at work so the stuff was well and truly dried on and had turned into something akin to Roman concrete. I've tried leaving wet Spontex sponges on the poo to wet...

  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello to my fellow alfa owners. An annoying bird decided to use the roof of my spider as a litter tray, unfortunately I didn't notice it for a couple of days and now I am having trouble removing the mess. I have even tried the auto glum specific wipes for bird dirt but no success (although in...
  10. Alfa Giulietta
    Well, the front bumper of my G survived an argument with a medium sized bird (partridge??) yesterday. Was heading to Fairford for the air tattoo and was making "good progress" ;) up the A419 from Swindon when two birds (brown and beige mottled things....partridge I assume) came hurtling out of...

  13. Car Detailing
    A bird did its stuff on my rear door the other week and I did not notice it for a couple of days as I did not use the car and it was garaged. Consequently despite very careful washing and physical lime removal, the paintwork has been damaged as there is now a patch of very dull paint, it almost...
  14. Car Detailing
    Hi all, This has probably been posted elsewhere, but the GT (Alfa Red) has been bombarded with that evil black bird mess recently whilst I've been at work, and whilst I've attended to it as quickly as I can by soaking it off when I get home, it's left the inevitable blemish afterwards. The...
  15. General Alfa Discussion
    One for the classic enthusiasts here!....Don't you just love Alfa's ethos of having a sporting engine at the heart of everything they do? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Alfa-Romeo-Matta-AR51-AR-51-1954-/110599401182?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item19c03ceede#ht_500wt_1156
  16. Car Detailing
    We've got some nasty marks in the clear coat on the Clio I'd like to try and remove. I'm assuming they are bird droppings that weren't washed off by a previous owner and have damaged the surface of the clear coat. I've tried Megs Ultimate Compound and Autoglym Paint Restorer and even t-cut...
  17. South Africa

  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Looked out of my office window a few minutes ago to see this! Was having a mild heart attack when I first saw the white marks, thought someone had paint bombed the car, it is a bit of a dodgy area at times... Went outside, seems to be bird muck. How the hell did the bird/s manage to hit nothing...
