You guys are so funny and helpful.

So gutted as on Friday a bloody stone hit my door and left a few marks which I can get my nail in.

Currently saving up for ceramic coating so will now have to get this sorted first.

Any recommendations as to the best way? T cut won’t do as too deep.

How annoying! I had similar, although deeper than yours and used a guy called Tan Likiliki from Chipsaway who did an amazing job, literally impossible to see where it was. He was recommended to me. I’m sure other Chipsaway people might be as good but he might cover Southampton area. Edit: not sure why I thought you were in the Southampton area, but if you are he does a great job!

Ceramic coating won’t stop this sort of damage though, you’ll need to have PPF fitted to do that.

Hope you get it back to how it should be!

Glad my recommendation went well for you ;)

In in south Leicestershire. I took it round to the nearest chips away guy today. Chose him as his reviews are excellent. He’s going to fix it tomorrow for £50 so happy with that. He’s also going to tidy up a couple of stone chips in that price as well.

Fingers crossed she looks good afterwards.

The problem with avian fecal matter is that it contains grit. Birds have no ability to chew but swallow grit with food which helps breakdown the feed to allow digestion. The best way to remove the matter is to dissolve the offending item with boiling water which instantly allows it to be gently wiped off. I once ruined a patch of metallic paint on a Merc I once owned. Nice wheels by the way!
