|dukeofearl||I have a similar problem with pine tree sap. Even worse on the windows, than paint. Car washes don't get it off.|

Someone suggested I use forever black dye. I'm going use that. I also discovered that the magic eraser is great for removing wax residue on trim and things like bird crap. Both on trim and exterior paint. If its stubborn wax or polish on the trim use a pink eraser and finish it with magic eraser.
Thanks for all the feedback guys.

Back to Black. I think its a mothers product. You can buy it from the evil oppressors of small business!
By the way. Thats some impressive bird doody. The gov't should do a major and expensive study on this vile fecal matter. Could have military implications!

The volatiles "burn off" of the plastic trim ... aka oxidize.
They sell things to bring them back to life (paint) or you can put some old ATF on them.
I put old ATF on my Cherokee's plastic trim, lasts a month or so then it turns gray again. I have so much old ATF laying around that I'll never run out.

I guess that's a lesson learned. I usually clean that crap off but I procrastinated. Paying for it now. I'm just going to go get the trunk repainted. This sucks.
I've got another question. What causes the black trim to turn gray? That's starting to happen. Is there anything I can do to stop it from happening with out making it worse? Someone told me if I used something to protect and condition it (or whatever you call it) will just make it worst.

|CriticalMass||Bird crap is highly acidic. Leaving it on there even for a week out in the sun can cause this. it eats through the clear coat and dries out and cracks the paint beneath.|

Hah you guys are funny.
I think I let the dookie stay there for like a month. I also hadn't washed my car amonth before that.
I'd also like to say I generally wash and wax my car to prevent this kind of damage. But money was tight and now I'm paying for it. I also find it strange that this started happening just a couple of years after buying the car. Though used the exterior paint had little to no damage when I purchased it
