Why do birds wait until you've cleaned your car before crapping all over it? I swear they sit on the roof tops waiting till you've finished.

Cleaned it at the w/e. Came out to it this morning. Looks like I backed into a milk float.

Does the shine scare them as they fly over or are they just evil???

.....definitely EVIL !

... and how do they manage to target it in bits that are very difficult to clean... i.e. Radiator grill, panel gaps... etc etc etc

Arghhhhhh!!!

I heard it was good luck if a bird sh1ts on you. Never really understood that one though.

My next door neighbour but one keeps doves. They are slowly dissapearing one by one with a little help from my old mate the air rifle. My car looked white just now, not silver !!!!:mad:

Thanks for the tip. Guess those interior screen wipes I bought will have to be used as intended instead!

Having already bought baby cotton-wool buds to clean in-between the gaps of the Kompressor badge, now I have to pick up baby wipes?

The girl at the chemist will no doubt get the impression I really look after my baby...

ahem


Babyoil to treat the leather?

The last time I washed my car it hadn't even been two hours before ONE single bird had managed to crap out the ENTIRE car!! Everything from the front-bumper to the rear bumper was crapped out - I could even tell which direction the bird had flown! I think they are frightened by the reflections or something.....
