Too much pollen falling in Georgia right now to do a detail!
My jeep is parked outside, and now I have this pesky bird who attacks the mirrors and sh!ts on them! He actually attached my drivers window as I pulled in to the drive yesterday, the little f...er needs to find something else to do!

I feel your pain with the pollen. Here in NE Florida we’re almost done. Had a neighbor post pics of his just detailed F150 and Mini Cooper and by the time we walked by the next day they both were covered in pollen!

That’s amazing, with a million places for a bird to land they are picking your mirrors. I wonder if they like their reflection in the door window?
It's a small bird that we get in Europe called a blue tit, they are very territorial and when they see their reflection in a mirror they think that it is another one trying to muscle in on their territory.

The result of this is fighting the reflection in the mirror and lots of shit coming out at the same time

Just got laid off this Friday. The company I work for builds high rises in NYC and I was fortunate to work up to this point as job sites were closing all around. Even though I was installing ceiling panels 120 ft in the air, inside the building we had over 50 cases!! Now I will have the shiniest jeep in the area

That sucks.

Blue Tit? Now that's funny! I had a common ol mockingbird that would poop down the side of my old Chevy Blazer, he got too cocky one day and the neighbor's cat got him.

I owned a Velocity Yellow Corvette once. It was incredible how many insect and mainly Bees would be attracted to it. Bees would swarm it every time I washed it.

So True about cats. Nature's killing machine. A neighbor had a cat that was killing everything in the area. The cat was extremely clever and unstoppable. It would sit and wait around another neighbors bird feeder waiting for birds. The cat would literally sit and not move for 15 minutes at a time waiting for the right opportunity. Eventually the neighbor with the bird feeder complained and the owner of the cat. The owner of the cat finally put a bell on the cat's collar. Everyone figured the bell would ring and give any bird or pray fair warning to the cat's presence. The cat adapted quickly. The cat figured out how to stalk and move without making the bell sound! Every morning the owner of the cat still had a bunch of birds and rodents on her doorstep. Talk about ninja cat moves! lol.

Yea I had to move my bird feeder higher up. Sometimes the cat will sit in the tree waiting for the birds that go for the feed that got knocked out and is on the ground. We feed the cats too though. They’re all Gods creatures.

Here in chicago they use a feral cat's natural predatory skills for extermination. They actually trap and fix stray feral cats and release them back into the streets so they can help control the rat population. They clip the tip of one ear so the City knows that cat is already fixed so it's not trapped again. The program works. Noticeably less rats.

We do it here to Nick. I’m actually certified for Trap/Neuter/Release. I just don’t have much spare time.

I had the same problem with a small bird that was attacking my Jeep every morning.

I asked my wife to sew up a couple of covers for the mirrors, and I don't have any more bird shit.....

Old T shirt sleeves.

Looking give first wax job to my 5 month old Rubicon. I is not garaged. Please advise on wax to use.
My priorities is one that protects paint against pin striping in the woods. Carnauba wax seems to do this well. And
also would like a wax that does NOT make any black plastic have white residue. Please give your thoughts.
Thanks in advance.
