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

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:
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.

Here, to contribute to this wonderful thread agin, because there is nothing like a glistening black coupe under the sun...here's a little photo dump of the pictures i took yesterday of my car in what i pretty much it's final state...i have a few more goodies to come namely dark lens tint for the reverse lights on the back...enjoy and please feel free to comment :)

Ohh...and also i have a box of colored oil based sharpie pens containing red, gold and silver so the lettering on the tires will be redone soon for something more...appropriate!
