helbound13 - I have an '05 4Runner and follow some of the FJ threads. Same thing happens on my 4Runner and my wife's '08 Accord They are polished 4-5 time/year each and garaged all the time. Bird poop is the worst, just like tree sperm. If not washed off usually before 24 hours or less you can kiss the paint goodbye, especially on darker color paints where you can see the mark more. Only way to avoid it is not to part under a tree where sperm is located or birds like to fly around. I love birds, but when they poop on my 4Runner or my wife's car we become enemies real quick! Wife thinks I'm crazy, but I tell her that's why her Toyota Avalon had the paint fall off the hood because she parked under a tree all the time and never washed off the bird poop or tree sperm... Yup, bird poop is that bad!So a bird **** on my FJ. Not thinking I washed it off using a microfiber and some detailer spray instead of washing it. It scratched the paint to hell. Marks all over. I understand I should have washed it, but wiping off with a rag and some spray should not cause that. Whats with the paint on these things?
