Help with paint stain

Hey guys,

I got this stain mark on my car (it's on the hood and rear side as well) Looks like a water drop/bird drop and it slid a little on my car and it's freaking ugly in the sun.

I took it to a few detailing shops and they wouldn't even touch it because they said a cut and buff wouldn't work. They said it definitely wasn't bird droppings and it was some chemical or something else that got splashed/poured on my car.

This one guy was able to take off a small portion of the stain but charged me 250 for it, and said it would be another additional 350 for the rest, which I think is crazy.

As for the stain, it's pretty smooth to the touch and you can sort of scratch it off with nails, but you'll end up scratching the paint. Anyone have any idea how to get those off myself? I've already tried using bug tar remover but that was no use.







Thanks

Yeah I don't have those tools. The detailer that did it for me used steam and wet-sanding, but had to clear coat/polish again. The thing with polishing is that you can't just polish that one spot on my hood, or one spot will be shiny and the others won't be as shiny. You have to polish the entire hood and that gets expensive as well.

You can buy the tools for cheap and learn to do it yourself. You will also be able to polish the rest of your car yourself.
The video is actually clean up of a bird poo stain,not a water mark.



Low cost DA polisher (same as porter cable)
