Hello to one and all, Since we moved to our new house, we have noticed that there are loads of sea gulls (I am inland and not coastal ...far from coastal ... but still get bloody seagulls) near our house. They seem to hover around the industrial estate behind our house. Anyway, with our house being in their flight path, they normally like to leave a pleasant surprise on the cars below. Bombs away, every bloody day. But they seem to favour my FR-V more than most. Blue is the rage with them birds. The bonnet, sides, roof everything gets covered. One day the whole car was covered in droppings. I took it to my nearest Hand Car Wash crew as it was that bad. They used their pressure washers to clean the car and in doing so, I noticed that they have torn the plastic film that covers the bonnet. Now the underlying paint is exposed. In the areas where the plastic is torn, the paint looks dull and the rest of the bonnet shiny. Has anyone else come across this problem? Does anyone know if I can the film/protective layer and get it re-fitted. I am just worried, that now that the underlying paint is exposed, over time, with it coming to contact with the elements, it might deteriorate, rust etc. I have attached pictures of the damage. Would be great to get some feedback.
