For removal of stubborn bug guts, bird droppings, tar, grease, etc....

Try Wd-40. Spray a little on the bug guts. Let soak for about 40 seconds
and remove with a clean dry 100% cotton towel. Repeat if necessary. Then
rinse with water to remove any oil residue from the Wd-40. Do not do
this procedure in direct sunlight! Do not use any abrasive polish or compounds.
If you use a product that contains abrasives you will put swirls and fine
scratches in your paint finish.

If the bug gits are still not coming off. You need to use Z-18 ClayBar.
If you need info on Z-18 ClayBar and its use. Check www.zainostore.com

Some bug guts are very acidic and will eat right into the paint. If you
have a couple of coats of Zaino on your car. At least the bug guts will eat into
the Zaino first..

Or...

Most 'fresh' mineral deposits (water spotting, acid rain, etc.) can be removed with Z-7 Show Car Wash or Z-6 Gloss Enhancer spray. If they have been on the car for a while and Z-6 or Z-7 will not remove them. Use household white vinegar full strength. This is acetic acid and will loosen and remove the mineral deposits and not harm the paint surface. Most of the time, the water spot etching you see is simply the hardened mineral deposit, giving the illusion of etching into the paint. Believe me, when these mineral deposits harden. They become really tough and hard to remove. The trick is to not give them a chance to harden.

If the above fails, then use the Z-18 ClayBar to remove them....

If those water spots on your car have been there for a while. They might be already etched into the clear coat. If Z-18 ClayBar will not remove them. Then what you are seeing is an etched spot in the paint surface.


Although, I am totally against using an abrasive product on todays clear coated finishes. It seems like, in your specific situation, you don't have a choice. I would try 3M Foam Polishing Pad Glaze Swirl Mark Remover part #39009 by hand, not by machine, using very light pressure. This should do the trick. Be careful when doing this and only do the water spot areas, as the 3M is abrasive and will remove paint material. Don't forget to reapply Z-5 or Z-2 as the 3M products will remove any polish.

If you opt to go with the 3M Foam Polishing Pad Glaze... see following tips...


3M Foam Polishing Pad Glaze use By hand:
Simply apply a small amount (about the size of a quarter) to a cotton diaper or piece of cotton towel and rub back and forth into about a 1' X 1' section using light to medium pressure until it starts to dry out. Then take a second towel and lightly rub back and forth until the polish residue disappears and the gloss comes up. If there are still some swirls visible you can repeat this step until they are minimal. I prefer using a less aggressive product a couple times instead of using a more aggressive product once. After you are done you can wash with Z-7 and apply Z-5.


NOTE: products listed above are from my personal experience of using Zaino for 5 plus years.

I think I got an etching from bird poop that landed on my car while it was at the train station. I cleaned it up, claybarred it, used Scratch-X several times but there is still an area that seems tarnished. I don't think there is much I can do about it within normal means.
