I just used Meguires cleaner caranuba wax. It is a polish cleaner and wax all in one. Removes lights swirl marks too.

I like gold class wax, it doesn't last as long but it's a deeper shine then most

What should I use to clean my roof, my car was wash 2months ago. Last week some birds gave my car some serious droppings. After work when I notice it, I clean it with water temporarily. Yesterday I washed my car and it seems that exact place where there was poop its sticky, can't remove it with soap.
What should I do to restore its original look.

Are you sure it's not sap? You can always use acclay bar.

Try some bug and tar remover or some hot soapy water.

Yeah, clay bar should get that out and you can save the bar for a full detail later.

Damn I wish I had the time for that. I just bought a clay bar kit and am going to spend today doing some detailing myself. Between being a full time student and working two part time jobs it's really hard to find the time. I wash my car every week but wax probably once every 2 months.

Its like a soft bar of soap that u rub all over the body of your car, which removes tar, sap, etc. As the bar collects the debris, you fold the bar in to get a clean spot and keep on going, keeping the car wet as you work with a spray bottle of water or something similar. It removes all of the stuff you cant get off with regular washing. Most folks who use it do it once or twice a year, to keep their paint/clear coat as clean as possible.

Clay is amazing basically this how it works: you get some lube ( not the kind you use with your girl friend), this is clay bar lube-it gets all slippery, but when it stops gliding and gets sticjy, you need to reapply.

Once year is definitely enough. I am skipping the clay this year. I did my car in spring 2010, and pulled stuff out right and left. So I re-applied in 2011 got some stuff out, not enough to justify the time. So I will skip this year and focus on cleaning the wheel wells out real good instead. Its probably a 2 day project.

I also should add my car sits in a parking garage at school, garaged at home mostly. It's not exposed to the elements a whole lot.

Re: Detailing

Just clay barred my car for the first time in my life. WOW! where has this stuff been all my life. My stang was getting pretty bad on the back and simple waxing or polishing would not get the specks out, so i bough a mothers clay bar kit on amazon.com for like $15. best cleaning agent i have ever used. granted it took me about 5 hours today from wash, clay bar, waxing, the whole 9 but it was well worth it.
