Bird S**t

I live on the coast and occasionally a Sea Gull empties the contents of its bowels on the soft top of my car. I have sealed the fabric with Fabsil twice since the winter, but what is the best way to remove the mess without compromising the seal on the fabic roof ?

A .22 rifle should fix your problem

First post, luckily for you!!

Just got myself a 330cd and signed up to the forum having come from an Audi TT convertible.

Anyway good to see you've done the fabsil already and know about it. Use carbonated water to get the bird **** out, check this link for some good general hood advice, I can defo vouch for it all working, especially the johnsons baby bath.

Depends on your tastes I suppose, many people like powder coating!
