    I've had the misfortune of parking under a tree for 2 days last week and my car was covered in bird droppings and fallen berries - about 30-40 markings etched in the clear coat between 2-6cm in width each :mad:

    I've received a quote from a detailing shop in Croydon: 800 for 2 stage polish and ceramic coat

    Is that a fair price?

    Are there other reputable shops in south London anyone can recommend?

    Seems expensive. I paid £600 for the same thing from a very well respected detailer. Suppose geography will play a part.

    Hi mate.

    I’ve a good mate who has his own detailing business. He did mine last year and I’m very picky about who I trust with my car. He might be able to help if you’re still looking. :thumbsup:

    If they fix it then yeah its good price, but surely that needs to be wet sanded?

    Wouldn't of though it would need wet sanding after only 2 days.

    The time line is not the governing factor, it is the depth of the acid into the paint...that needs correcting.

    Forget all the "detailers" OP - take it to a decent/quality Bodyshop and ask them to attend to it.

    Fair comment, but what I was getting at was after only 2 days the lime imo wouldn't of etched into the paint deep enough to warrant wet sanding.
