Default Brand new paint + stone chips + horse crap = me pissed off

ok, so loast winter my car got all kicked in, keyed up, all the way around. 100 bucks and a week without it, and i had a brand new, showroom looking paint job. awesome. so about two weeks ago, i got stuck taking some back roads up to kalamazoo and they had FRESHLY redone them all with that gravel and tar crap. a huge truck flew by me at at least 70. stone chips. everywhere. sucks so bad. now, since ny wifes sunfire kinda crapped out,ive had to drive the bonneville to work. i know some of you are in ohio so you might understand that in northern indiana, amish are everywhere, and thats where i work. and where theres amish, theres horse crap, EVERYWHERE! that stuff is like glue once it gets set in. some did. also, no damn good. ok, so you all see my problem, im done ranting for now. im gonna go try and scrub some poop off my poor car. im gonna have to get some pontiac butt mud flaps for the passenger side so this stops happening.

................ whoa, looks like somebody had some bad luck put in the sugar smacks I grew up in Northern Ind, but NOT that far up I'd suggest bug and tar remover, or just have the pooper scooper handy dandy in the trunk for emerginces, nothing like chips or the environment messing up a paint job, and yours was fresh, how bad is it?

flaking? oh, oh, may MIsta ask what kinda paint job did you get? flaking'* not a good thing cousin, GM has those little paint fixers at any local auto store. They're basically for knics and scratches use this item to fill it in, of course, you'll need clear coat and all to make it official again,

I'd suggest several coats of wax to help protect your paint, and make poop removal easier.

A couple of coats of Liquid Glass will do the trick also

Poke around the net for 3M paint protection film http://www.autoameristar.com/paintpreotectionfilm.html . Goes on like a "clear" tint but its tough, clear, and protects the leading edges of your car well.
