    Need some advice on bird bomb and stain seats

    Hey guys!

    I just added another one to the stable this past weekend!

    It's a 1 owner 93 LX Hatchback with 27k miles. The paint overall is on good condition. But it does need a good paint correction.

    The first thing I'd like to try and fix is what looks like a bird bomb on the hood. I'm not sure if it can completely be fixed or not?

    The second thing is some minor staining on the drivers seat. It looks more like a water stain really. I don't think my camera picked up on it the best. I can try to get a better picture.

    I appreciate the help!Need some advice on bird bomb and stain seats-img_20211126_123757877-jpgNeed some advice on bird bomb and stain seats-img_20211129_061928877-jpg

    Cool, what products do you use? I think I might need a little more aggressive pad than what I've used in the past. I only have a orange and white cutting pad.

    Today would be a good day to order more pads. I have Wolfgang total swirl remover and a porter cable da.

    I used Griots Correcting cream and an orange pad...I just hit it with about 25 pounds of pressure on the DA for 3-5 seconds at a time and then wipe and review progress

    Another Foxbody, nice.

    27k miles and one owner, bet that went for a pretty penny (way more than I could get for mine, that's for sure).

    I can't comment on the paint correction, but as usual, start with least aggressive adjust from there.

    So I've been using the turtle wax upholstery cleaner which seems to work.

    I will be attempting to fix that one area I posted above soon.

    For upholstery, i like using my carpet cleaner with the hose attachment (they make dedicated spot cleaners too). I pre soak with a decent fabric cleaner, then hit it with the solution from the machine. Thats usually enough to get rid of most things. Anything stubborn gets fabric cleaner and light scrubbing. I always try to finish off by running hot water with no solution from the machine to try and pull as much soap as possible. Then i dry with a microfiber to speed along the process.

    I actually don't have a carpet cleaner machine. May have to look into that.

    Would this work?

    I've used the Bissel Green Machine on cloth interiors before with good results. We bought ours a long time ago when there was only one model. Now there are several. For personal use they might be a good alternative. They tend to be less expensive and smaller/more portable than a pro product like you provided in the link. Pair that with a good sport remover and interior cleaner and you should be golden.

    I believe I found the green Bissell on Amazon. They have a bunch of other models, but after reading up on them I don't see much of a difference between them. Did you use the cleaning solution that comes with it?
