Question Can this be fixed / covered up a bit?

Hi,
Just found that bird bomb on my car, really tried to remove it slowly with QD and MF towel, even let the QD sit a minute to make the bird softer.
I removed it by caution but it left a mark, like the worst one.

Can't tell if the clear coat is cracked but it looks like that.
it has the regular "burn" base with these cracked patterns.

The car is 2017 model (Opel / Vauxhall adam s)
I had it coated with Cquartz uk 2 years ago so im guessing its not there anymore, its also being washed everytime by hand and wax + QD as well (a month ago with Built Hamber speed wax + Koch Chemie protector wax).

What should i do now? just leave it like that?
Thanks

Give it as little polish by hand and hope it comes out, i think you will find it will. The more in around 2017, 2018 vx clear coat the more in starting to dislike it.

Neighbour had something similar on his Juke - we used Meguiars ultimate compound and it shifted it well, then applied LSP again and all good.

He’s since bought some AG paint renovator and this has worked well for him on subsequent bird marks...

How can i know if its not the clear coat itself that's getting cracked? So i won't make any "holes" in the paint or make this start peeling everywhere..


Ste T - its funny how all the new cars comes with barely 100 micron clearcoat on it today, most of the cars are like that and so as mine, we checked it before doing the light polish i did 2 years ago, but at least the polished hold till today.

Can't see the pics in much detail on my phone, however a heat gun may help, have a look on YouTube for this method. I've done it before on Audi clearcoat and it worked a treat.

can you feel it under your nail, like it is pitted?

or is it on the top, like tranfer (Fromt he birds ass to your paint).

If so I Would start with some TFR or APC.

Then as mentioned above move to a mild polish, then a compound if needed.

As said by big dave above I would definitely try the heat gun method on that. I have used this method a fair few times with great success, a friend came to me recently asking if I could do anything with a pretty bad bird mark on the passenger wing of his black Audi a4 so out came the heat gun and with in 10 minutes the mark was completely gone, fair to say he was extremely pleased. The mark on his was a fair bit worse than yours so going by that I'm fairly confident you will have success with this method. If I can find the before and after pics I will pop them up on this thread.
Hope that helps.
