    I noticed something today on my car, which wasnt their before, on the door/roof theirs white things, looks like effect of spray paint, little white dots

    what could i use to remove these as they did not come off with wash

    and also after i finished cleaning/waxing the car, some parts of the car looked like it had small leopard sports and not a proper shiny black finish, anything i could do for that too?

    and last thing, something to put on the car so that wen touched it doesnt leave oily marks when people touch it

    Can't put anything on the car to stop fingerprints mate, got the same problem myself, just tell your passengers to push the door from the handle when closing and carry some quick detailer and a MF to wipe down.

    Leopord spot, can you feel them? and gets some pics up off them. Could need wet sanding and buffing.

    I'm using mer detailing spray purely because it was on offer in halfords lol but its okay to use but needs quite abit of elbow grease to rub out. Leaves a good shine though.

    meguirs scratch x 2.0 is suppose to be good. At a tenner its well worth it after the video's i've seen.

    See my above post but you shouldn't rub in bird sh*t, You should put a hot wet towel on the mess and leave for around 5mins and then it'll glide off and something about the pours on the paint opening and letting the trapped lime out

    And without doing this you run the risk of scratching your paintwork.
