Same! I've come to accept the fact that our cars will ultimately be plagued by satans spawn known as pollen. 🤬 BUT, my car still looks good though, minus the occasional bird poop on the hood that i just noticed not too long ago. 😔
My Civic got bird shit on the hood at work a week after I got it. I knew not to just wipe it off due to grit in the droppings. Washed it 10 hours after it happened, still has stains. Local detail shop looked at it and knew right away it was bird doody, said they wouldn't suggest correcting it, might buff through the clear coat or paint. It's only noticable if you know where to look, but "I" know where it is.

Found some on my spoiler the other day. Hoping to wash and wax the car tomorrow and just accept the pollen that will come. It has been at lest 6 months since the last time i have, so it needs it bad. Not too much of a price to pay for the nicest color tho.
You know, you're right, but that Lunar Silver just speaks to you.

Oh yeah my car has been yellow since march but cleaning it during pollen season only means it will be covered again the next day. Especially since my school parking lot is surrounded by trees.
I keep a California Car Duster at all times to get pollen off. Between my Civic and my girlfriends Mercedes E-350 station wagon in black most of my life is now keeping cars clean.

Lunar silver does look nice, but something about the white looks super nice as long as it has the white wheels to match

White DOES looks good, but i'd prefer White on Bronze or Gunmetal.

Another member mentioned the car duster, but part of me feels it'll just scratch the car after collecting what is just picked up after a few passes. :dunno:

For what it's worth, Turtle Wax Hard Shell paste wax seems to protect well from bird and bug damage. It's a PITA to apply, a Harbor Freight random orbital buffer to apply helps. Sometimes the old school stuff works the best.

Yeah that's what I use, and it was a massive pain to apply. The end result was amazing tho

I was concerned about that as well. I only use it if something can be removed by blowing on it. Dust or pollen, for example. I bought it when I had a Vette, (also black, glutton for punishment) which had never seen a machine car wash, no scratching or anything. It's acts like a magnet, must be static or something. And like a cast iron skillet, the more you use it the better it gets.
