Water beads on the paint really well so it doesn't look like the wax is gone. Using mothers 3 step system.
How do you guys stop this from happening??
Whoa, did I read this right? You CLAY every month? I think you should re-think your process and consider a sealant topped with a wax. What wax are you using? A quality wax on average should last over 3 months easily.
With a sealant topped with a wax you have a much better shot of getting to the bird crap before it etches its way down. I'm not sure any product can prevent the acidity from going straight through your wax/sealant/clear but it gives you a longer window to work with.
